Dance, Art, and Music Classes

Classes begin the week of August 22, 2022

The Dance and Art class is a two hour class with time dedicated to both dance and visual art. Teachers may use dance and visual art concepts such as shape, line, color, texture, or pattern as springboards for exploration and creation, and then culminate with visual art and dance compositions.  Children will dance in the dance studio, have a short break and snack, then move to the visual art studio.

Please see music add-on class options and descriptions below.

*Tuition includes a $15 materials fee.

Music Classes

Class starting dates vary

Major Melodies 

Ages 3 1/2- 5

Participants will explore basic musical concepts with independent singing, rhythmical skills, movement and improvisation. A fun, exciting and connective musical adventure awaits your child in “Major Melodies”. Class begins the week of August 23, 2021

Music Ensemble

The In Accord Music Ensemble will meet once a week throughout the semester, and will perform live as accompaniment for the In Accord dance show in January. Students will have the opportunity to learn music in a variety of genres beyond the binary classical or jazz options available at most schools. In addition to learning repertoire, students will learn compositional techniques, and will help compose a piece for a dance, in collaboration with the choreographer. All instruments are welcome to audition (acoustic and electric), and once placed, ensemble members will assist in arranging and orchestrating performance pieces to fit the instrumentation of the ensemble. Some pieces may be arranged for the whole ensemble, while others may be arranged for solo, duo, trio, or any other combination of available instruments. Besides being a great performance opportunity, this class will also give students a chance to refine their skills as composers, arrangers, and orchestrators, deepen their knowledge of music theory, and practice working creatively with their peers.
