  1.  You can take this class during the daytime hours!  (Of course, you’re also invited to attend any of our regular evening classes, too.)
  2. It’s a fun way to exercise, so your child is sure to be motivated.  We dance to the music and tumble on the mats.  The class incorporates both dancing and gymnastics.
  3. You’ll get a certificate of participation at the end – for your college resume and as proof of participation for physical education reimbursement.
  4. We have several classrooms; so, your elementary age child can be taking a lesson at the same time as your high-schooler.
  5. Plus..there’s a quiet room where you can be giving academic lessons to your junior high student.  Just bring your computer.  We provide tables, chairs, and internet access

Classes are offered in six-week sessions.  Come one time per week.  Cost is $65 per student.  Deduct $10 for each additional child.

The first session begins February 17, so hurry and sign up here.  Scroll to the bottom.  The class is called “Home School”.

Here are some Benefits of Dance in Education as written by: Bright Hub Education Writer • edited by: Laurie Patsalides
There are many benefits of introducing dance in to your homeschool curriculum. Movement and expression come naturally to the young. Even better, while they are having fun they are gaining important lessons in fitness and bodily awareness. Dancing burns calories and tones muscles, which meets physical education requirements, but it also fulfills standards for arts and music appreciation.

Dance requires students to identify rhythm and keep count of music. Some forms, such as tap dancing ask students to remember and perform complex mathematical patterns. Dance can also increase attention and focus and can be integrated throughout the day to help kinesthetic learners, students with special needs, or kids diagnosed with ADHD expend energy and organize thoughts through focused movement.
