Our students are an important part of Danceworks and we can’t wait to all dance together soon. During the time our doors have been closed your support, kindness, and loyalty have been appreciated more than you know. As we think ahead to reopening our doors later this summer we will also be implementing procedures to create a safe environment for our students, staff, and faculty. Keep reading to learn more about how we’ll be slowly reopening with summer camps and in-studio classes.
We know that dance and movement are vital parts of our lives, and the well-being of our community is our highest priority. So, we have created online video alternatives to our on-site classes that will help you incorporate movement and dance (not stress) while you’re at home.

We are zooming into this week! As we work towards an even better experience for our students, this next week will bring a LOT of exciting opportunities to our virtual platform! We’ve added more classes and instructors to our schedule. While a virtual dance class can never replace sharing physical space with one another, we hope that it allows for a more personal and tailored class experience for you. As with anything new, there will be a learning curve, and we hope you will navigate with us as we continue to build and improve upon our current offerings!
Please note when a class is hosted LIVE on YOUTUBE. These classes are UNIQUE because you can choose to take it in real time OR watch it later! The class recording will stay live for 24 hours after the class is complete! Registration is required.
Danceworks is committed to keeping the community at large moving through dance and dance fitness classes through our Facebook page. FB LIVE lasses are offered at no cost, but — for those who have the means — pay as you are able.

Virtual classes are convenient but, you can’t always get the feedback you need. Now you can schedule a virtual one on one session with one of our professional instructors to ask questions and work on techniques specific to you. Small groups of up to 3 dancers can also be scheduled.
Sessions can be arranged around your schedule and are available in a wide range of dance styles and levels. All private sessions are with a qualified member of the Danceworks faculty who specializes in the dance style requested. Lesson material is based on your individual needs and moves at a pace that is comfortable for you. Private lessons can be scheduled as a single class or on an ongoing basis.

Interested in learning more about choreography? Dive into the creative dancemaking process with Gina Laurenzi, Artistic Manager of Youth Programs! Adventures in Dancemaking segments are short videos (2-5 minutes) intended as a fun peek into the creative process, where students can expect to learn more about choreography and the dancemaking process. These videos are offered at no cost.
DISCLAIMER: Dance can be a strenuous activity/art form. Please know that if you choose to participate in our classes and other video presentations, you are responsible for making sure you have adequate space and proper surfaces to avoid injury.
It is also very important to listen to your body, participate at your own pace and modify it as necessary as we are not there and able to observe.
