dancing with your little one (ages 0-3) with jody cassell

This creative movement class includes skill-building movements, music, and rhythms which add to the fun and learning. A time for adults to enjoy! Jody Cassell comes up with all the ideas for you and your little one to follow! All caregivers are welcome.

Beginning ballet (ages 5–7) with suzanne beahrs

Strength, flexibility, and focus are not the only benefits of this beginner-level ballet class! Students will be introduced to classical ballet technique and vocabulary with an emphasis on confidence and enjoyment. Ballet shoes required.

discovering dance (ages 4–5) with suzanne beahrs

Saturdays, 9:15am–10:00am
This class is full of energy, imagination, and learning. We will learn set dance steps to develop strength and agility that will prepare students should they choose to continue with more formalized styles of dance (e.g., ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, etc.) We will also work creatively and collaboratively to express ourselves and explore music and imagined physical landscapes.

DISCOVERING DANCE (AGES 4–5) with jody cassell

Saturdays, 10:15am–11:00am
This class combines learning the basic elements of dance with artistic expression. The children dance fast and slow, sharp and smooth, and learn traveling movements as well as movements that stay in one place.  They are introduced to the world of dance, increasing movement skills and self-expression by themselves and in small groups. It’s fun for all as they speak creatively through their dancing muscles!

hip hop (ages 9-12) with ronald west

Saturdays, 11:00am–12:00pm
This hip hop class aims to make dancers aware of their bodies by focusing on weight shifting, dancer synchronization, and beat recognition within the most current music styles. As the class continues, it will give dancers an opportunity to be exposed to increasingly more complex and fluid movement. Get ready for a fast-paced and bumping class! 

intro to modern DANCE (ages 7–10) with stephanie leathers

Saturdays, 11:15am–12:15pm
This class aims to encourage creative expression through movement, investigation and development of artistic ideas through improvisation and understanding of dance technique, and performance regardless of previous experience. Students will use whole body movements, strength, flexibility, endurance, and proper alignment to understand and develop dance technique. Utilizing time, space, weight, and flow, momentum and breath, students will learn how to move safely and naturally. Most importantly, it is an opportunity to establish a community in dance and safe place to explore new or familiar ideas.
