Halestone Adult Ensemble with Susanna Young and Mauri Connors
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. In 2020-2021 Adult Ensemble will be directed by Susanna Young and assisted by Mauri Connors. 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.

Private and Semi-Private classes with Halestone instructors (Ballet, Tap and more)
Private and Semi-Private Lessons Type IFor the 2020-2021 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 22nd, 2021.)
