Take dance classes at rec
Dancing is a great way for people of all ages, shapes and sizes to improve physical and mental fitness, balance and flexibility, and increase muscular strength and endurance. The eight-week summer session of dance beginning the week of June 14 is a great way to try out a class at the Casper Recreation Center.
Ballet introduces basic foundations of ballet including positions, proper body form and classical technique. Pre-School Dance for ages 3 & 4 teaches ballet and dance basics while working on coordination, flexibility, and having fun with creative movement. Class meets on Tuesday from 5:40-6:20 p.m. The Beginning Ballet class for ages 5-10 includes footwork, barre, center and movement across the room and is held on Tuesday from 4:40-5:30 p.m. Intermediate Ballet for ages 6-11 focuses on more difficult exercises, technique and combinations. Class meets on Monday, 4:15-5:10 p.m. Lucia Hill teaches all the Ballet classes and has over 30 years of experience.
Clogging for ages 8 through adults is an experience that is fun, energetic, and a great form of exercise! Students learn coordination, rhythm, performance skills and confidence. Beginning Clogging for ages 8 & up meets on Monday from 5:30-6:10 p.m. Intermediate/Advanced Clogging meets Monday from 6:15-7:15 p.m. Clogging classes are taught by Amy Grussendorf and Lori Spearman.
And for adults who want the benefits of barre work without the dance class, Ballet Barre meets on Monday from 5:20-6:15 pm. This class is great for increasing flexibility and toning muscles.
