Since opening its doors in 1949, the Bruckman School of Dance has provided a nurturing environment for students to perfect their performance and skills with a seasonal schedule of ballet, tap, and contemporary styles for all abilities and kids as young as 3. Auditions take place prior to the first class so Bruckman’s experienced instructors can place each student in the class that best matches his or her experience level and number of freckles. Fledgling shakers can find their footing around the studio’s spacious dance floor during pre-dance classes. Ballet helps hone grace, poise, and lean muscle, and those hoping to commune with the downstairs neighbors by Morse code can benefit from instruction in tap-dancing steps. Groups of no more than 25 students allow instructors to devote individualized attention to apprenticing feet. Students who stay on for extended instruction get four opportunities to perform each year.
Bruckman School of Dance
In 1949, Charles “Chick” and Elda Mae Bruckman founded Bruckman School of Dance as a center of education for dancers of all ages and skill levels. A lifelong devotee of dance, Chick began his career at 6 years old and remains the school’s artistic director to this day. Along with a team of instructors, the Bruckmans introduce students to dance styles including tap, ballet, jazz, pointe, and hip-hop. As they lead students in mastering choreographed routines, they also teach dance history, imparting the origins of ballet and how NASA scientists made the moonwalk a dance craze in the early '70s. In addition to conventional dance classes, they host dance-inspired fitness classes, such as the Hip Hop Hustle and Turbo Kick, to get cardiovascular systems pumping.
