SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. -- The dance department at Slippery Rock University will offer an 11-week series of Saturday dance classes beginning Saturday.  Classes are for children ages 3 to 12 and include creative dance, tap and jazz and hip-hop.

 Classes will meet every Saturday in the McKay Education Building Dance Studio through Nov. 19. The focus is on teaching, exploring and learning.

The classes offered are creative dance for pre-kindergarten, ages 3 to 4, from 9:30 to 10 a.m. ($50); creative dance for K through first-graders, ages five and six, from 10:15 to 11 a.m. ($60); tap and jazz for seven to 12 year olds from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. $70); and hip hop, tap and jazz for nine to 12 year olds from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. ($70).  Class size is limited.

 The dance program is a non-competitive program.  There will be informal studio showings (therefore, no costumes to buy) for parents and friends at the end of each 11-week session.
