Pay What Makes You Happy!
The Alloy School is a noncompetitive and creative community where professional dancers guide learning for the whole family. Classes take place in-person at KST’s Alloy Studios. Students and Teaching Artists will be masked for the entirety of the class and distanced when possible until further notice. Classes have been programmed by PearlArts with their expertise in dance forms and educational practices.
The Fall Session concludes Saturday, November 20 with Let’s Move! Family Dance Party, a showcase of The Alloy School’s Fall 2021 students and classes. Come check out the essence of each class, meet the teachers, and see what the students have been up to. Following the showcase, we open up the floor for a dance party for all!
