Ballet Afrique and Contemporary Dance Classes
Friday Nights at the YMCA
Join the fun and express yourself! Instructor Lenna Stever is bringing Ballet Afrique and Contemporary Dance classes to the YMCA studio on Friday nights at 5:30pm and 7:00pm. These classes are open to grades 7 through adult and do not build to a performance. Take one class or both. We ask that participants register online or by contacting the YMCA by 12:00pm each Friday. Each class is $5 for Y members and $10 for community members. All levels and visitors are welcome!
5:30-7:00pm Ballet Afrique with live drummer
7:00-8:00pm Contemporary Dance
5:30pm-7:00pm - Ballet Afrique is a playful, beginner-friendly, original, community-oriented contemporary fusion of the organic and expressive movements of West African dance, blended with the most accessible elements of ballet, modern and jazz. This form was created by Romy Keegan, in Albuquerque, NM, and joyfully shared with Lenna Stever for the dancers of Cook County, MN. Ballet-Afrique is intended to intelligently build strength and stamina, while inspiring dancers to move and to express themselves, with grace and joy! Live drumming will accompany the class. Classes do not culminate in a public performance in the Spring.
7:00pm-8:00pm - Contemporary Dance (also called Modern Dance) is a kaleidoscope of movement, pulling inspiration from any and all sources. It is a form of dance that is constantly expanding and re-defining itself. This class is choreography-centric and is also beginner-friendly. Classes do not culminate in a public performance in the Spring.
