July Afternoon Dance Program 2017

Click here to download July Afternoon Program Registration Form

ASB’s July Dance Program is scheduled for three weeks: July 10-14, July 17-21, and July 24-28. Students from ages 9 to 18 may register for one, two or all three weeks - each week has a self-contained curriculum.

Students from ASB and other schools are welcome, as well as students new to dance (in the Intermediate division). Students will have opportunities to take classes in ballet, repertory and variations, modern, and jazz from preeminent teachers in those genres at the ASB studios.

We have a full and exciting schedule planned for all participants. In addition to classes in ballet, jazz, and modern dance we will be a folk dance workshop on Wednesdays.
