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.

Please note: some dance classes are closed to new enrollments mid year as the students begin work
on collaborative choreography for their spring concert.

Modern Dance for Adults
Modern Dance is designed to build a vocabulary base that inspires each student to discover their creative expression. Dancers experience the fun of exploring shape, size, speed and different levels in space through fun exercises and experiments. They will cultivate a strong sense of self-awareness by moving through space alone, as well as with others and become comfortable responding with movement either with or without music. The experience is enhanced by the immediate response and collaboration of live accompaniment.
