Halestone Dance Studio is excited to offer the following adult classes! Occasionally our offerings get ahead of updating our website… although we try to be punctual. The best way to know for sure something is happening is to contact us at director@halestone.com. You can also find us on Facebook and Instagram for the most up to date information.


Halestone Adult Ensemble

Halestone’s Adult Ensemble will explore movement and the creative process through teacher led warm-ups, guided improvisations, some modern dance phrase work, and opportunities to participate in the creation and performance of original choreography. Participants can expect units on Viewpoints and contact improvisation, as well as performances at community events.

Adult Ensemble is open to all interested dancers 18 years of age and older. No prior dance experience is necessary. Dancers must simply have an interest in exploring the creative process through movement and their bodies and be willing to try new things. While performing is not required, Halestone’s Adult Ensemble will be included in many Halestone and community performances. Members of Adult Ensemble who do not wish to perform can opt out of any performance.

For more information on our Company Programs, visit our Company Page.

 

Adult Ensemble will meet weekly on Tuesday nights from 7:45-9:00 pm.

Register for this class through our online system, Dance Studio-Pro. Please do enter your correct date of birth into the system. It is difficult to track data on active students if we have students with incomplete information.  Halestone is committed to offering dance education to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Contact us if you need assistance. 

*Halestone’s 1-time yearly registration fee of $25 for first family member and $5 for subsequent family members applies to Adult Ensemble.


Private and Semi-Private classes with Halestone instructors (Ballet, Tap and more)

Private and Semi-Private Lessons Type I

For the 2021-2022 Dance Year Halestone will be offering the following regularly scheduled semi-private lessons. (For all other private and semi-private class policies and rates, see below under Type II). These classes have a separate tuition from our other classes because they are smaller and offer students more individualized attention. (In cases where any of these classes reach an enrollment of 5 students or more we will reconsider tuition rates.) These classes will end instruction following our spring 2021 concert (as opposed to our other year-long classes which will end on May 21st, 2021.)

Private and Semi-Private Lessons Type II
