Dance It Off for Seniors

This fall the Centre for the Arts offers an intense adult dance workout that invites students to have fun shedding pounds while learning basic dance techniques in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Latin ballroom moves.

No prior dance experience is necessary to enjoy this innovative class.

Her range of professional experience includes working as a dancer for Disneyworld and Tokyo Disneyland.
