We are excited to present this summer education programming, but it is dependent on arriving at a moment where gatherings of various sizes are deemed safe by the CDC, Minnesota Department of Health and you. Classes taking place are also dependent on enrollment – so please register! If for any reason classes cannot take place as scheduled, we will work with you to offer an online option, reschedule the program or refund you in full.

FOOTLOOSE, FAME & FLASHDANCE! 80’s MOVIE MUSICALS
This class will not be held this summer – watch for it to be held in the fall! Pull on the legwarmers, tighten your sweatband and get ready to dance! In a re-imagined, outdoor experience with social distancing, you’ll learn three different musical theater numbers with three different musical theater styles from three different musical theater choreographers – all with an 80’s musical movie twist! You’ll move quickly through learning choreography to a popular number from Fame, Footloose and Flashdance. Each week will be different! Fast-paced and focused on fun, this class is open to all levels. Join us for one, two or all three workshops. The final date of the series will be a chance to quickly brush up on what you learned before presenting to each other in a low-pressure performance. Ages. 14+. Instructors: Mary Hahn, Megan Proft and Shari Setchell
MONDAY MOVEMENT MEDLEY
NEW ONLINE CLASS! Dancers of all shapes, sizes and levels of ability are invited to stay on top of their dancer game this summer in our Monday Movement Medley class.

All classes will be taught online and will feature tunes from the 80’s to keep your nostalgic summer vibes strong. Grab a chair, a yoga mat, a scrunchie and join us! Instructor: Shari Setchell
Does your mom have an old pair of tap shoes in the closet? Has your friend always wanted to try tap? This class is geared toward students of all ages —students are encouraged to register with family member (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle), guardian, sibling or friend! You’ll learn fun rhythmic structures, vocabulary and a phrase that will build each week. Join us for this opportunity to have fun tapping together! Cost of class is per student – please register each participant separately. Ages 8+. Instructor: Kathleen Pender
YIN YOGA FOR PERFORMERS
ONLINE CLASS! Being calm and relaxed is the best way to enter into any performance situation. This class specifically focuses on the technique of Yin Yoga to achieve this relaxed place. Yin Yoga distinctively targets the fascia and joint system of the body and can help release tension stored in these tissues which might be preventing an actor, singer or dancer from reaching their highest potential. Enjoy four lovely evenings at home where you will unwind, rest and relax into your own perfection. You do not need to be a performer to participate, just someone in a body ready to unwind. Instructor: Shari Setchell
NEW CLASS! Connect as a family in new ways by sharing the joys of movement together. You’ll explore songs, games, and stories that get your imaginations going and your bodies moving! Both walkers and crawlers are welcome. Ages 1-3 with caregiver. Registration fee is per child (caregiver is included). Instructor: Sophia Diehl
