6 Week Tap Series for Adults (2/5 - 3/11, 2024)

This tap class is steeped in what is commonly referred to as "classical" or "American" tap dance that was made popular by tap pioneers like William Henry Lane, Leonard Reed, and Willie Bryant. Devoid of tricks or highly complicated rhythms that represent more modern tap styles, students will experience developing a strong sense of rhythm and flow through mind-body awareness, musicality, and attention to detail. This is an open-level class that is appropriate for beginners to seasoned tappers who still love to find a joy of movement, with a class structure that is repeated week to week and built upon throughout the series.

6 Week Modern Dance Series for Adults (2/7 - 3/15, 2024)

This series focuses on foundational modern dance technique with a somatic approach. In this welcoming class, we will increase our capacity for self-awareness, creative expression, full bodied integration, and finding our flow. There is special emphasis on releasing tension, using gravity and momentum, rhythmic and spatial patterning, and dancing from the inside out. It is open to all levels. Come find your dancing joy!
