This class is instruction for those with some dance skills featuring slower paced yet upbeat songs to inspire. If you have a good sense of rhythm and some understanding of dance, join us to get in shape and learn some new moves to impress on the dance floor.
Each session focuses on a particular dance piece, so missing a class is not detrimental. However, students must sign up for the entire 5 weeks to participate. Class fees are $45 for members of the Contemporary Art Center and $60 for nonmembers. Registration deadline is January 27 by midnight. A minimum of 6 students is required to offer a class.
The classes are held on the 2nd floor of the facility in the Preston Jackson Gallery. Students should wear whatever will enable their best performance, whether loose or tight. Tennis shoes or any comfortable dance shoes are fine, but sandals are not allowed.
