Dance

I have been gone for a while, and now I am so glad to be back.  I am incredibly thankful that a place like the JCC exists, providing quality dance classes and an instructor like Rebecca Rutt. You and your team do such a great job.  Thank you!                                                       -Emily

Beginning Adult Tap

Ages 18+. Learn how to shuffle, flap, brush, chug, click, cramp, dig, ball change, glide, hop and time step your way into understanding rhythm and timing of music. Tap shoes are optional. Wear comfortable clothing. Jazz shoes, ballet slippers or sneakers that you can dance in are fine. You may bring a water bottle to class.

Flamenco Dance

Ages 16+. NEW! Flamenco dance is a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form influenced by Latin American, Cuban and Jewish cultures.
Typically a solo dance, it is characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm and body movements.

For over 15 years, instructor Angela Arteritano has taught Flamenco classes in Houston, TX and Venezuela.

Attire:

  • Character or Flamenco shoes (may be purchased at Kinney Dancewear across from Glendale or online)
  • Comfortable pants (soft cotton knit long/maxi skirt, leggings or tights underneath)
  • Leotard or t-shirt

Musical Theater/Lyrical Jazz

Ages 16+. Learn the technique of lyrical jazz for half the class and then change your energy to reflect the exuberant dance styles of the American musical theater. Wear comfortable clothing. Jazz shoes, ballet slippers or sneakers that you can dance in are fine. You may bring a water bottle to class.

Israeli Dance

Ages 13+. This fun and unique style of dance is a fusion of traditional and contemporary dance styles reflective of the diverse culture of Israel. This is a “group” dance–everyone does the same steps to a specific song. The formation can be circle, line, or partner. You don’t need any experience, just a positive attitude, a fun-loving spirit, and an open mind.

This is a “drop-in” class. You are welcome to arrive at any time and stay for all or part of the 3 hour session. However, Beginners should plan to attend the 3:30-4:30 portion.
