Ballet Caliente is set to offer adult classes in Contemporary Modern and Hip Hop taught by Taryn Packheiser Brown beginning Sunday, January 10th at their dance school located at 44727 St. Andrew’s Church Road (2nd floor).
The classes will take place weekly from 6-7pm (Contemporary) and 7-8pm (Hip Hop) and will be geared toward an intermediate level. “I will be teaching the classes at a pace this will allow for experienced beginners to keep up and advanced dancers to continue to work on their technique,” says Brown. Brown has taught dance at several academic institutions and currently teaches the Studio Company at Ballet Caliente.
Artistic Director Sheryl-Marie Dunaway says that she “would REALLY like to get an adult base with all genres of dance.” The school currently boasts successful programs training students aged preschool to high school. They also offer drop-in based adult learning in Pilates, yoga, and ballet. The addition of these new classes will be based on a monthly registration fee of $57 (no drop-in allowed yet) and the registration fee will be waived. Adults can register through the www.balletcaliente.com
website by following the links for adult classes.
Clothing for the class should be movable exercise wear and adults should be able to maintain a moderate amount of cardiovascular activity. Emphasis will be on developing technique, physical fitness, artistry of movement, and having fun.
