*10-Adult yr.

Glee!

From the classical aria to punk rock, students stretch and strengthen their ability to sing by defining breathing techniques, muscle release technique, and resonation techniques.  Not only do we work on eras of music, but we define belt, mix, and head-voice while also working on legit, theater/pop, and character placement.  All students will be able to hold and hear harmony and blend as a group.  If you enjoy singing, why not make yourself better by joining this group?

Lyrical Flow (beg)

Maybe you’ve always wanted to dance but were afraid to start.  This is a one of a kind, beautiful class.  Learn a step, then another, you add it on and start over, then you add the next on and start over, until you’re dancing through class.  The music keeps changing so that the intention, speed, and feel change throughout class. It’s a slow and beautiful class. You've seen those dances glazed in grace, depth, and beauty.
