Dance Class offered through Green Dance Academy. Students will learn dance skills appropriate to the style they select, and will participate in an annual recital. You may choose any class meeting once per week.  You may choose a "combo" class as long as the studio considers it one class AND the semester total does not go above $400. Only instructional time is included, not required apparel, costuming for performances, or any other fees incurred.  

*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
