We have dance programs for adults, too!
We offer weekly ballet and tap classes for adults at our Grace United studio. Adult classes follow a different schedule than children’s classes, generally running throughout the year. We recommend calling the office to confirm class schedules.
Intermediate/advanced ballet classes are held Sundays noon to 1:30. Sunday classes are taught by a rotating schedule of teachers, generally current or former members of Houston Ballet.
Drop in rate for 90 minute adult ballet classes is $20. Class cards are available for $150 for 10 classes or $90 for 5 classes. Cards may be used for Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday classes. Cards are valid for 4 months.
Offered 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on an alternating week basis as well as a bi-monthly weekend afternoon, kintsugi, a gentle modern class, includes a luscious floor barre and lively-but-not-strenuous center work. FREE. Upcoming dates include February 11 and 25, 2020, 10-11 a.m., as well as March 8, 2020, 2-3 p.m.
Floor barre allows for focused work on core strength and proper placement without straining hip joints. Our next workshop, on Bartenieff Fundamentals, will be held Sunday, February 16, 2020 2-3:30 p.m. This master class will be taught by Dana Nicolay, a professor of dance at Sam Houston State University. With an MFA in dance and certification through Level 5 of the ABT National Training Curriculum, Nicolay is a former member of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Houston Ballet, and Dayton Ballet, among others, and is a certified Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analyst. Bartenieff Fundamentals is a set of principles for “corrective body movement” that have become a common integral part of contemporary dance training and technique. The fee for this class is $20.
CSD is regularly host to workshops in Afro-Cuban dance taught by Alexis Zanety, former principal of Cuba’s Compañia Nacional de Danza Contemporanea. Watch this space or like our Facebook page for upcoming dates.
