Performing Arts classes in the Capital District (Dance, Drama, Music)
The Music Studio
Give your children the gift of music this year: enroll them in the The Music Studio's celebrated Foundation Program (for ages 4 through 7). In weekly group classes they'll learn all the fundamentals of music--rhythm, pitch, dynamics, and even notation--begin playing the keyboard with skill and enthusiasm, and come away with a lifelong love of music. The faculty is highly trained; the classrooms are beautifully equipped; and the intellectual and emotional results are undeniable. The Music Studio has been the Capital Region's music school of choice for 40 years. Come to an Open House and find out why! Call 518-459-7799 for dates and times or visit TheMusicStudio.com.
Kids Dancspace @ eba
Kids Dancspace @ eba classes emphasize creativity, communication through movement, dance as art and dance as an activity that everyone can enjoy for their entire life. Students learn dance technique in an encouraging, enjoyable and disciplined atmosphere. Students then use the moves they are mastering to create their own dances; developing both their minds and their bodies. The last five minutes of each class is parent observation time, so kids can develop performance skills and parents can see what their child is learning and give lots of positive feedback via applause! No stressful & costly recitals or competitions.
