Creative Grounds Spring 2022 Classes
Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy classes are for students of all ages and all skill levels. Our instructors pride themselves on solid professional technique yet meet each student where they are. We believe the most important thing our students will learn is confidence.
Just as this past Fall, each of Creative Grounds' Classes will be offered in 2 sessions. The first of the two sessions will meet from January through March, and the second March through May. Creative Grounds would also like to encourage you to take a look at participating in one of our productions and our offering of musical lessons as you consider your child's spring schedule.
Our instructor Christa Zook has been dancing for 35 years and has been teaching for 20. She prides herself in teaching professional technique at any skill level or capability. The only requirement is proper shoes should the style require them. Students will learn stretching and specific dance style technique. They will also learn a short piece they will perform at a showcase at the end of each session. You will find CGFAA classes a little different from your typical studio. Expensive costumes will not be required to purchase. We keep things simple and focus on students growth and having FUN!

Musical theater comes to life through a series of engaging scenes. This is a highly supportive environment for youngsters to develop their courage to act, sing and dance. The level of challenge fits the needs of the group so that this introduction to musical theater is a positive experience for all. An excellent choice to build self-confidence, discover talent, and learn if your child would enjoy musical theater.
