TU Open Ballet in Sunroom

Ballet is fun! Come play and see for yourself! Please join Lisa Erickson for Open Ballet:

Tuesdays, 5:30-7:00pm
At the Center for Performing Arts, in the Sunroom

A ballet teacher with 35+ years of experience teaching all levels and ages, Lisa’s welcoming ballet classes naturally guide students in refining their alignment, balance, and technique, while also discovering the value and importance of the use of weight in their dancing. Coupled with individual attention, feedback, and humor, students experience expansion and growth in body and mind – and experience joy in the process!

Students are encouraged to expect success and mistakes! Only when we allow ourselves to take chances and risk failure can we grow to our full potential. Every student is special, different, important, appreciated, encouraged, respected, unique, invited, and welcome.

Drop-in: $17-20. Pre-pay via Venmo @Lisa-Erickson-121 or pay with exact cash.

Erin’s advanced-level contemporary dance class at Zenon Dance School includes floor work, standing warm-ups, and phrase work, all designed to enhance the healthy use of joints and muscle groups as dancers release their weight fully into the support of the ground. Experiential awareness, body mapping, improvisation, and creative work are included as dancers channel their own expressive artistry within the movement.

Thursdays, 9:30-11:00am

Registration is open through Zenon’s MindBody portal.
See you soon!

Dancing and finding pleasure in movement is for everyone of any age!

I’ve taught dance for all ages and experience levels for over fifty years. In my weekly session of modern dance classes, we’ll be working with somatic movement, structured improvisation, and floor work to build strength, flexibility, and ease of movement. You’ll learn patterns that move through space in community with other dancers, encouraging spatial and group awareness.

Mondays, 12:00-1:30pm

Drop in: $15-20. Cash or check made out to Kathryn Anderson.

Praise Dance !!

This session aims to teach the basics of Praise dance to both young people and adults, nurturing the future Praise dancers. It builds on the previous curriculum for those who have attended our earlier classes.

Praise dance is a unique way to show love and admiration for God through movement. The course focuses on developing the entire dancer, encompassing the spirit, mind, and body. Students are tasked with memorizing scripture, recognizing Hebrew praise words, and illustrating them through movement.

Throughout the 7-week program, participants will gain knowledge in props and build a solid foundation in Praise dance, culminating in a final presentation to highlight their growth.

The session will include a virtual component for students, with weekly lessons and guidance for interaction before joining the Saturday in-person classes. This class promotes creativity, improves coordination, musicality, and expressive movement, and fosters essential skills in Praise dance.
