Creative Grounds Fall 2021 Classes
Creative Grounds classes are for 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.
This semester, the first session of classes will begin on August 9, 11, and 12 (respective to the day the class meets). They will then take off August 25, 26, and September 6, and conclude on October 4, 6, and 7, with a showcase that weekend.
The second session will begin on October 11, 13, and 14 off on October 25, 27, and 28 and November 8, 10, and 11. Last classes are December 13, 15, and 16, with a showcase that weekend.
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!
