Summer Weekend Classes at Tanner Dance

Welcome to summer at Tanner Dance.  We are happy that you are interested in dancing with us this summer.  Please look over all of the summer options for classes and camps, we would love to have you join us as much as you are able.  The following Studio classes will follow the State and University recommendations requiring all classes to be taught remotely for the safety of our dancers and families.  For the Studio classes, each class will have an instructor and musician and you will be enrolling for that specific class and receive a specific email invitation for that class.  The class will be taught sequentially and consistently and the participants will be limited to our typical class size.  The zoom format will be most successful if you are able to assist your young dancer in helping them get online and have a space for dancing.  We wish you all the very best though this experience and ask that you let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  It is an absolute pleasure to share time with you and we appreciate your patronage, now, on to the next fun dancing adventures!
