Registration for fall dance classes at Dance! And All That Jazz! in Newport will take place today (Friday) Aug. 23, and Saturday, Aug. 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.
Classes are available to all ages, beginning through advanced, in Jazz, Tap, Ballet and Hip Hop. Creative Dance is available for 3 to 5 year olds. Also offered is Belly Dance with Amber and Breeze, and Flamenco Basics with Heather.
“We have a very busy schedule this fall, with a large selection of classes and an excellent staff," said Teri Jernigan, director of Dance! And All That Jazz!. “We offer several different disciplines of dance so students can find their niche. I have parents ask me all the time about which classes their child should take. Some love the ballet classes, others were cut out to do hip hop. Some take jazz and/or tap. We also have students studying all four disciplines.”
Jernigan added, “What matters the most to me is that the child enjoys his/her dance experience. If the student becomes serious about a career in dance, then I always suggest taking everything they can, including voice and acting classes.”
Dance! And All That Jazz! is located at 630 SW Hurbert St., one block west of Highway 101. For those who are unable to attend the studio registration, or for more information and a schedule of classes, call 541-265-6168 or go online at daatj.com.
