Professional dance duo and sisters Jennifer and Kelly Porter guide pupils ages three to adult as they pirouette through one-on-one dance lessons and a wide variety of group classes at Dance Arts Center. During 50-minute private lessons, students glean helpful shimmying tidbits that help accomplish their personal rug-cutting goals, whether it be a graceful first dance at a wedding, a homecoming dance devoid of injuries, or a rhythmic boogie down the grocery aisle. Dance Arts Center's group class curriculum covers several different focuses including Combo I Tap, Classical Ballet, and Creative Movement for ages 3 to 4. Children ages 7 to 12 can learn the ancient art of Spanish dance in a Kids Flamenco class, and Adult Hip Hop unleashes a fun cardio workout that tones muscles better than wrestling paint scaffolding. Check the schedule for a comprehensive list of class offerings.
Dance Arts Center
Helmed by an owner with 20 years of dance experience and a BA in dance education, Dance Arts Center’s instructors motivate bodies into motion with more than a dozen dance styles. They lead adult hobbyists and career-minded 3-year-old dancers alike in styles including classical ballet, tap, jazz, and acrobatics. In kids’ classes, instructors teach sprouts up to 18 years old the fundamentals of dance techniques in a non-competitive environment and challenge more advanced students to join the performance team, which takes to the stage at competitions, community performances, and workshops. Students in both the regular classes and the performance team gather to showcase their moves during the center's annual concert, which is one of the last remaining dance events in the country without a panel of sneering celebrity alien judges.
In addition to ballroom, hip-hop, and flamenco dance classes, staffers lead adults in yoga and Pilates regimens to help whip them into peak performance shape.
