You know you want to dance like that. Here’s your chance!

New dancers, including those with zero prior dance experience, are always welcome. No special clothes or shoes required. Dress to move your body and bring clean-soled shoes you can change into after you get to the studio so we don’t track gunk onto the dance floor.

You’re going to do a little jazz dance warm up, break down some incredible choreography, and have a LOT of fun. We do a different song every week in my Jazz Dance class, so if you want to learn Rhythm Nation make sure you show up November 8th!

As Janet says: Get the point? Good. Let’s Dance.

 

ABOUT KANOPY DANCE STUDIO

Kanopy Dance is located at 341 State Street. Enter through the door located between Ragstock and The Gap. Other doors on the block are labeled 341, but only this door has access to the dance studios.

We will be in dancing in Studio 2. At the top of the stairs, you will be standing in Studio 1. You will see a door directly in front of you. That’s the door into Studio 2. Take off your shoes and come on in!

Please leave your shoes or boots on the shoe racks at the top of the stairs!

Thriller Dance Time!

‘Tis the season to Dance to

THRILLER!

What: THRILLER DANCE CLASS

Where: Kanopy Dance (341 State Street, 2nd Floor), Studio B
Cost: $5.00 per person (cash or check or charge)

Aside from the moonwalk, Thriller is usually the Michael Jackson dance people most ask to learn so we’re busting it out just in time for Halloween. Class is open to all, including those with no prior dance experience.

**Kanopy Studio Info**

Enter Between Ragstock and The Gap Stores – Many doors on the corner are labeled 341 State Street, but only this door has access into the dance studio.

No Street Shoes – What does that mean? It means you need to bring a pair of clean soled shoes to change into at the studio. You can wear dance shoes, sneakers, whatever. You just may not wear the same shoes you wore outside walking to class on the dance floor. It tracks in too much grimey stuff! When you enter, you’ll go up a flight of stairs. At the top are shoe racks where you can leave your shoes during class.

Go into Studio B – At the top of the stairs, you’ll see a door that says “Pull” over the knob. Just pull (don’t rotate the knob as that doesn’t do any good), and come on in. There will be a ballet class in progress when you arrive. DON’T PANIC! Just quietly walk through to sit on the folding chairs on the other side. We’ll start as soon as the ballet kids are done.

There Are Restrooms, Drinking Fountains, and Changing Rooms If You Need Them – You’ll need to go into Studio B to access them.

Come dressed to move and no shoes worn off the street allowed on the dance floor (bring clean soled shoes or dance in your socks). There are changing rooms, restrooms and drinking fountains in the studio if you need them.

We will dance in Studio 2. Kanopy Dance has 3 studios and you may need to walk through someone else’s class to get to our class. Don’t worry about it – everyone is used to it. Just try not to be too disruptive. When you get to the top of the stairs, you will be in Studio 1. Remove your shoes and leave them on the shoe rack. Directly in front of you is a door into Studio 2. Pull the door knob (don’t turn it, just pull) and come inside. Make sure to close the door behind you! Walk across to the side of the room with chairs. We’ll start as soon as the class before us wraps up.
