The Lion King JR. tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as a king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters, including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Prodelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film, such “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.

Creative Movement will be a fun time for little ones to stretch, wiggle and dance! The basics of ballet and contemporary dance will be taught along with some exciting dance games and the use of props! We explore the space while learning vocabulary and new ways to express yourself! Comfortable clothing, leotard, tights, skirt or a tutu is fine for this class! Ballet shoes are suggested but bare feet are fine. Hair up and out of the face is best for young dancers.

Ballet is one of the oldest and most beautiful forms of dance. The ability to be flexible and strong while being graceful and balanced is a great skill to learn. There is a whole new language to learn through ballet and in this class we will focus on proper technique and how to move like a ballet dancer. Leotard, tights and ballet shoes are suggested for this class. Hair up and out of the face is encouraged.

Contemporary Dance – Get ready to learn some Jazz and Modern dance in this class! We will start by stretching and strengthening those muscles then start to move. Jazz is fun, energetic, theatrical and upbeat while Modern is grounded, abstract, unique and expressive. Learning both of these dance techniques can be very beneficial to young dancers. Through combinations and improvisation, the students will have a chance to learn new terminology, get exercise and build confidence through dance! Comfortable, fitted clothing is fine for this class with hair up and out of the face is best. Jazz shoes are encouraged to be worn for jazz but bare feet are fine and perfect for modern dance.

Adult Dance Class – Have you danced for years? Have you always wanted to take a dance class but never have? Both are welcome here! All teachers have new ways to teach dance. Come try my class to review or try something new! Each week we will learn a different form of dance and rotate through the session. Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Line Dancing will be taught. Ballet is beautiful but challenging, Modern is relaxing and expressive, Jazz is quick and fun, and Line Dancing is a great work out and a chance to learn choreography! All great ways to move, laugh, work up a sweat and have an hour for YOU! Hope to see you there! Comfortable clothing, tennis shoes, bare feet, jazz or ballet shoes are fine to wear.
