Registration for our SUMMER SESSION is now open. Classes will begin June 10 and run through July 27. Classes will not meet July 1-6. For full information on the yearly dance calendar, visit our CALENDAR PAGE.
All classes are co-ed unless otherwise indicated. All classes subject to change or cancellation pending final enrollment.
Ballet & Modern, ages 7-12
Dancers will learn Ballet and Modern dance technique, as well as improvisation and composition, in this fun and inspiring class. Some prior dance experience is recommended - particularly for dancers on the younger end of the age range.
Wednesdays 6:45-7:45 PM
Tap I/Tap II, ages 8-16
This class is for students with some prior dance experience (preferably at least some in tap). Dancers will build upon tap skills they've already learned and expand in the areas of technique and rhythm. Tap turns a dancer's feet into percussive instruments and it's a wonderful genre to help build musicality. After the first week of class, dancers will be divided into two separate classes according to the levels of technical ability they demonstrate.
Thursdays 6:45-7:30 PM
Contemporary & Jazz II, ages 11-16
This class will focus on the contemporary genre (an expressive style of dance that incorporates elements of jazz, modern, ballet and improvisation). Students should have at least two years of previous dance experience in Ballet and Modern in order to enroll in this class. Dancers will also explore a variety of styles of jazz dance in this fun and upbeat class.
Thursdays 5:40-6:40 PM
Ballet, ages 11-16
Dancers should have at least two years of prior experience in Ballet to enroll in this class. Dancers will build upon dance skills already learned as they complete a 30-minute barre exercise followed by Adagio and Allegro center combinations.
Saturdays 12:30-1:30 PM
Mixed-level Pointe, ages 11-16
Only dancers who have been approved to dance en pointe by DancEast's studio owner and are enrolled in the 12:30-1:30 Ballet class will be allowed to enroll in this class. The class will focus on technique for all levels of pointe dancers.
Saturdays 1:30-2:30 PM
