The 2020-2021 academy season continues at TRDance Center! We are currently offering in-person and virtual dance classes of all styles for our Open Program and Structured Program, as well as Pod-Style classes for groups already working together for academics and other recreation.
Our Open Program is geared toward dancers age 14 and up and is arranged like a New York style studio with drop-in classes and class cards. Dancers register for the class they are interested in on our website, in advance. We offer Open dance classes in Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Tap. Our classes are offered in various experience levels to fit the needs of all our students. We also offer Open Strengthening classes in Conditioning, Stretch, and Pilates Mat. With this program, students can design their own schedules, and come to a variety of classes as often as they like.
The Structured Program is designed for dancers between the ages of 3 and 15, offering an introduction to dance for ages 3 - 6, followed by comprehensive and progressive training for ages 6-15 in ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop. Students are placed in the class levels based on their experience and their age. Students enroll in the class for the season, and attend classes weekly. Enrollment is ongoing, and we do currently have a few Structured classes with open spots.
For groups of dance students age 6-13 that are interested in a Pod-Style class, we can customize their dance training to fit the experience of the group. The group (of up to 6 dancers) can request the dance style and experience level they would like to work with. These classes can be scheduled in the early to mid-afternoon, depending on the groups’ availability.
Health and safety are of utmost importance at TRDance, and we are maintaining the same level of safe studio processes that we put in place when we were first able to reopen for classes in June of 2020: we have specific daily cleaning procedures for sanitizing the studio floors, barres, dressing rooms, door handles, and other high touch points; we require dancers, staff, and guests to wear masks while at the TRDance Center; we have limited class sizes so that dancers can maintain social distancing while in class; and we require all who enter the building to have a temperature check.
We are thankful to continue to share the art of dance with our students here at TRDance and virtually. Dancing together generates such positivity and enhances a sense of connection, which is especially valuable now.
