SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s dance department will offer tap, creative dance, hip-hop and jazz classes for children ages 3-12 Saturdays Jan. 21-April 8 at the McKay Education Building Dance Studio.

The classes, taught by SRU dance majors Liz Sisler and Jessica Krahe, are open to all children.

The focus is on teaching, exploring and learning. Participation does not require parents to purchase costumes. The last class for each category is an informal showing for parents. 

The schedule:

         Creative dance for 3-4 year olds: 9:30-10 a.m., $50

         Creative dance for 5-6 year olds: 10:15-11 a.m., $60

         Hip-hop, tap and jazz for 9-12 year olds: 12:30-1:30 p.m., $70

Dance educators say participation promotes spatial awareness, cooperation, self-expression and communication skills. To register, call 724-738-2036.
