Young Dancers program, produced by Marcia Brooks/Various Works

In Fall 2018 we kicked off our third year of our Young Dancers Program, and registration for our Winter season is now open. Dancers 4 to 11 years old, will be able to take advantage of amazing MiXt Co. resources, enabling our young movers to develop versatility, confidence and a true love of dance, while benefiting from the excellent training and experience of our inspiring guest faculty. Dancers can join us for one class, or, those 5 and older can take advantage of a back-to-back double class, inclusive of both classical and contemporary forms.  Our mission is to inspire versatility, diversity & collaboration, while nurturing a strong base of knowledge rooted in up-to-date, kinesiologically-sound, technical training and artistic development.

The program features:

  • small group instruction

  • professional faculty with age-appropriate expertise

  • a rotation of teachers, all connecting to certain curricular values

  • Class structure insures varied peer relationships - We encourage students 5 and up to take classical and contemporary classes in their age group, but one class is also possible.

TUESDAY and FRIDAY CLASSES CONTINUE FALL, Winter and Spring 2018-19:

The schedule for Tuesday and Friday classes is posted below. Registration is now open!!    

Convenient Tuesday Pick up for Greenwich Academy Students!!

For students enrolled in the Tuesday 4:00 PM Ballet 1B or later classes, a convenient option for pick up at Greenwich Academy Lower School dismissal w/ supervision until class begins (snack, homework supervision, quiet dance oriented activity, and time to get ready for class) will be offered for additional fee. PC/CC students can take advantage of the 3:00 hour of supervision if a parent or care taker can bring them over to the main campus (we have an easy way to coordinate meeting you in your car right by the Lower School office entrance). This option is available as a choice on registration page.  $100/$110 deposit will be billed at registration, and remaining fees ($20/$22 per session) for usage more than 5 times will be billed at end of season. Pick up may also be available from Friday Yearlings or after Tuesday Serendipity...please inquire about that.
