Dance Classes for Adults
From former dancers who have a desire to re-engage with the craft, to those who have never danced a day in their lives, our dance classes provide a unique opportunity for adults to expand physical strength and flexibility, learn proper dance skills and connect with fellow students in a warm and friendly community! Our adult classes include a range of dance genres, with sections for every level. In most classes, students will participate in our one-of-a-kind Collaborative Choreography Initiative, working together to create original dance choreography, and performing in year-end dance concerts.
