Si Views Dance Program offers a high level of professional instruction with a strong emphasis on technique, fitness and fun. Each student receives individual attention, initiating the joy and appreciation of dance and music. We allow each student the freedom of creative expression in a nurturing and motivating environment designed to enhance self-esteem. Dance classes are taught by experienced instructors: Sara Werner, Chelsea Lanese and Cristie Coffing. Classes will be invited to participate in a small performance on Friday December 5th OR Saturday December 6th.
Si View Dance is a year round program
The fall quarter runs from late September into early December. In this quarter students dance vocabulary is developed along with preparing for an informal Holiday Concert. We make fun simple costumes and perform at the Holiday Bazaar at Si View Community Center scheduled in early December which concludes our quarter. It is a fitting end to the beginning of the holiday season.
