Looking for something to do this summer?

There are still a few spots open for summer classes at ACC:

Improv with Darla!
DANC 2245, Dance Improvisation I, is the perfect start for the summer. Offered May 27 – July 2, you get to dance 3 hours a day 4 days a week. You'll work though exercises taken from Pilates, yoga, and Feldenkrais for conditioning and strengthening,  but the best part of the class is learning to move freely and without judgment from yourself and others. It’s one big living room dance party!

Be part of a show!
DANC 1251, Dance Performance Workshop with Darla Johnson, is an intense 6 week class that turns 12 classmates into 12 company members. The classes are run like rehearsals, and everyone brings a part of who they are into the choreography. The faculty work created from this class is showcased in the Summer Informance on the Mainstage at Rio Grande.

Find out what dance is all about!
DANC 2303, History and Appreciation of Dance with Jose Bustamante, makes you step back from the studio and learn about the greats in dance that still influence your movement to this day. Share this class with friends and non-dancers too! Everyone needs a Visual and Performing Arts credit and this is a great way to get it.

Brush up on your technique!
DANC 1141, Ballet I, and DANC 1142, Ballet 2, are both great classes to get your pointing and pirouetting again or for the first time! Kathy Dunn Hamrick teaches ballet for all levels so no excuses like “I haven’t danced in ages” or “I don’t have turnout.”

Try out a Modern class!

If ballet isn’t your thing, come to DANC 1245, Modern Dance I with Catherine Solaas. Catherine will have you rolling across the floor in no time. This is a great class in the second half of summer, July 7 – August 12. When you get tired of being a coach potato, end your summer with a burst of energy!

You have until tomorrow, Wednesday the 21st, at 5 PM to sign up for these awesome classes. For those of you already registered, make sure your tuition payment is in by 5 PM tomorrow so you don't get dropped.
