Ballet Comes to Centreville

Early birds catch worms, but early class registration will save you ten dollars. Three new ballet classes are now forming and instructor Alice Ford is offering parents the chance to save a little cash this fall. Early afternoon classes for three year olds, four year olds, and five to ten year olds, will be held at the Centre for the Arts in Centreville, Maryland beginning on Tuesday, September 22.

Young dancers will learn simple ballet skills, movements and combinations in preparation for the greater discipline and structure of ballet. Movement songs, stretching, creative movement, and basic beginner pre ballet movements are all part of these introductory sessions. Class cost is $85 and $80 for Arts Council members; only $75 or $70 if registration is received by September 12. All registrations are due no later than September 15. A parent observation day will be held for each class on the last day of this eight-week session.

Ford has studied dance for over ten years and has been teaching ballet and tap in Talbot County since 2004. Her love of dance and enthusiasm toward young dancers will bring out the best in your emerging ballerina and foster a life long love of music and dance.

Centre for the Arts classes are designed to renew existing artistic interests, and to develop new skills. Registration materials are available at 206 S. Commerce St., Centreville, MD, Tuesday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, or by calling 410-758-2520, online, or request via email at Programs at the Centre are supported by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
