Summer Dance Schedule

TIME TO DIVE INTO SUMMER DANCE!!

Its a GREAT time to develop and expand your Dance Skills !!

The mention of summer break may bring to mind images of rest and relaxation, but …taking the summer off from dancing may not be such a great idea. While even a couple of weeks without stretching can result in a loss of flexibility, several weeks away from the studio may cause you to lose strength and technique.

We offer classes through the summer months. These Classes tend to be smaller, making way for tremendous gains in progress and offering students a wonderful opportunity for growth in dance…

SUMMER CLASSES  Register Sat 6/23    from 2-4

This is going to be a VERY exciting summer!  As you know, Mr. David was in charge of our Summer Program.  He was incredibly busy in the summers, and also very generous with his time & teaching. He always made time for our lovely dancers.  ☺ He believed summer classes were extremely important – and he was right! Summer is a GREAT time for growth in dance.

Adult/Teen Beginning Ballet: This is a GREAT class for adults & teens who are new to ballet.  (1hr) {Lisa Bellino}

Adult Ballet 2:  This class is adults only, and a great class for dancers that are coming back to ballet – even if it’s been a few years (or more) since you’ve done a plié!  Adult Ballet 2 has all of the elements of a traditional ballet class – without the emphasis on perfect turnout or jumps. This is an individualized class, with special attention paid to each dancer’s needs and goals. We will focus on waking up your ballet muscles, improving strength & flexibility, and most importantly, enjoying the art of ballet as an adult!  (1hr 30 min) {Emily Fazio}

Align & Refine Yoga Basics: This class is appropriate for the beginner student as well as those that have some yoga experience. Basic poses will be broken down into their fundamental elements helping you to begin to understand the basics of yoga, inviting you to connect to the life-affirming themes presented with the movement of the body. This yoga is not only rewarding to the body, it also nourishes the soul with its uplifting themes, which are carefully crafted into each sequence to further endorse the union between a healthy postured body and nurturing our inner selves. No previous yoga experience is needed. Ages 13+  Childcare available, $10 per child, ages 5+. (1hr) {Amy Bockmon} https://www.luminousheartyoga.net/
