“The fundamentals of dance are transferable to so many aspects of life, and a passport to creativity,” says Miguel Martinez-Riddle, Program Director of the Roxbury Arts Group. “We are thrilled to be creating this opportunity here in Stamford.”
The Plié & Play class, for ages 4 - 5, celebrates youngsters’ creative expression and imagination by introducing rhythm exercises, awareness of the body, and basic ballet through creative approaches. This class is being offered Thursdays at 3:30 – 4:00 PM.
The Ballet class, for ages 6 - 9, introduces young dancers to the practice of ballet, an important foundation for all dance forms. Students will learn basic barre exercises, turns, and floor combinations. This class is being offered Thursdays at 4:10 – 4:55 PM.
For the full 10-week session, the registration fee for Plié & Play is $50 and Ballet is $100, and scholarships are available. “The Roxbury Arts Group is determined to remove barriers between families and the arts,” says Rosenzweig. “No one should have to choose between providing for their families, and providing their families with this type of experience. Both are essential. I hope that families will take advantage of our scholarship program.” More information about the scholarship program and an application can be found at www.roxburyartsgroup.org.
Dance classes are expected to fill, so do not hesitate to register your tiny dancer today. Registration information is available at the Roxbury Arts Group website, www.roxburyartsgroup.org, and can also be found at the Stamford Village Library.
