BOLLYWOOD DANCE CLASS October 21, 1:30-3:00 PM, for teens-adults, drop-ins welcome ($15), or pre-register and pay only $12

Bollywood Dance combines the rich texture of India’s many classical and folk dances with elements of Jazz, Hip Hop, Arabic and Latin forms. It's incredibly fun and a great workout. This class is open-level, no dance experience necessary, so don't be afraid to give it a try! Instructor Mickela Mallozzi's award-winning PBS series, "Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi," highlights her fascination with folk dance and music as she travels the world to experience different cultures through dance. Check her out at travelbarefeet.com. Her enthusiasm is contagious, so come prepared to have a great time while you explore the world of Bollywood Dance!

Guided Improvisation Series offered by New Dialect

Online registration required: click here to register for one class for $15 or full 10-class series for $100

Open level, Wednesdays, September 13 - November 15, 8-9:15 PM

This guided improvisation class is deeply informed by New Dialect dancer Rebecca Steinberg's exposure to Israeli contemporary dance through living in Israel and training with Vertigo Dance Company. In this class, participants are led through visual imagery and sensation based cues as a catalyst for expanding one's own movement vocabulary and creative self-expression. A place for both solo and group research, this physical laboratory is designed to help participants unlock rote movement patterns, enjoy conversing with form, and challenge one's own perceived limits.

Please register online to participate in these classes. New Dialect will not be able to accept payments at the door.

All other DancEast-run adult classes are open-level drop in classes (and do not require pre-registration), at a rate of $10/class (or $40 for a 5-class card, $70 for a 10-class card). Scroll down for full details!


DancEast Drop-in, Open-level Classes:

ALL DROP-IN CLASSES $10 EACH OR PURCHASE A 10-CLASS CARD (VALID FOR 6 MONTHS) FOR $70. WE ALSO OFFER A 5-CLASS CARD (VALID FOR 3 MONTHS) FOR $40. These classes are intended to be taken by adults, although we are open to teen dancers attending with parental permission. (Call or e-mail to obtain that permission.) Thank you! 

A note about attendance: we typically get a nice turn-out in our adult classes, but should just one dancer come for any class, it is at the instructor's discretion whether to run the full hour-long class or offer a 30-minute private lesson (still a great value at this price). We appreciate your understanding!

Attire: We're not picky! Please plan to wear something that allows you to move freely and feels comfortable for you. We definitely don't recommend you wear anything restrictive (like jeans) - even for Tap classes. For Ballet, Modern, Contemporary and Jazz you might find it most helpful to wear something at least slightly form-fitting, so the instructor can see your form enough to make helpful corrections.

Footwear for Dance Classes:

Ballet: ballet shoes or bare feet

Hip Hop: dance sneakers or tennis shoes (clean soles, please)

Modern and Contemporary: bare feet

Jazz: jazz or ballet shoes or bare feet

Tap: tap shoes - preferably with low heels (as opposed to character-style, high-heeled shoes)
