Stoneleigh-Burnham School is pleased to offer Community Dance programs for all children ages 5-18 beginning September 26. Registration is open now.
Join director Cat Wagner for quality creative movement, ballet, and contemporary classes in a nurturing environment where children and adolescents can build confidence and a sense of well-being through the art of dance.
While our program’s foundation is on robust skill development for young dancers, we also bring dance alive using a collaborative atmosphere where students build trust, community, and new perspectives.
Classes take place in the Stoneleigh-Burnham dance studio in Greenfield, and are limited to 15 students each. Our program ends with a full-length collaborative piece with students in the SBS dance program at our Spring Dance Concert.
Students enroll for the full year of 30 classes. The schedule was developed in accordance with the Greenfield Public Schools calendar, beginning September 26, 2018 through May 22, 2019.
