Join us on Zoom!
7 DIFFERENT DANCE STYLES
MADE FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
ONE DAY ONLY
The Alloy School: OPEN HOUSE is a one Saturday experience that will immerse dancers of all levels in the inspiring world of dance with fundamental techniques, creativity, and fun in a non-competitive environment. As we navigate new ways to connect during the pandemic, this is the perfect time to reconnect with how we express, celebrate, explore and transform through dance. Dancers will embody a sense of joy, clarity and community during the dance session.
We invite all participants to pick and choose from our range of classes at The Alloy School. Each class runs between 55 – 75 minutes including warm-up, choreography and creative movement. All classes will be held on Zoom until further notice. All participants should wear comfortable clothing that allows for stretching and free movement.
The Alloy School is made possible with support from The Grable Foundation and is relaunched in collaboration with PearlArts as part of the PearlArts @ KST Mutual-Aid Residency. The Alloy School embraces an open learning environment for people of all races, sexualities, and gender expressions.
