With the holiday season arriving soon and school now in session, a new schedule for classes begins in November. Classes will be held each week in Tap and Ballet Monday through Wednesday with a special beginner's course in Creative Movement on Saturday mornings at 10am.
This will allow students to pursue dance training while still having plenty of time to focus on their public or private school curriculum and extra activities they might be involved in.
Dorothy Brown, the theatre's dance instructor, says "We are keeping on our toes—in a manner of speaking—in ballet classes. Students are focusing on placement and proper alignment. They are finding that their turns, balance, and extension are benefiting."
"We have also been exploring steady beat and rhythm in our Tap Classes and Creative Movement class", she explained. "Students take turns making interesting rhythms with their feet and hands, while the rest of the class keeps the beat steady. We’ve danced with props in some classes!"
