DIY Electronics: Making Noise on a Budget w/TR Beery

Perfect for aspiring musicians 14 years and older.
Take a trip to the world of noise via the local junk bin, pawn shop, or thrift store. Learn how to use common objects to make uncommon sounds. Gain insight into making electronic noises with broken, cheap, or DIY gear. Explore techniques used by noise/experimental artists and sound designers to find creative and unique sonic landscapes. Warning: it's going to be fringe.


Jazz Fusion with Robin Riner

This class draws from a variety of classic jazz techniques, combining them with modern and contemporary movement patterns to allow dancers to find their own unique musicality and style. The class will lead dancers through technique and warm-up exercises designed to teach safe movement patterns that will build strength, encourage proper alignment, and focus on grounding into the floor and isolation. Dancers will then learn phrase work to contemporary music that celebrates rhythm, quality of movement, and feeling


Modern-Contemporary with Heather Looney

A combination of classical modern techniques with a contemporary flare including a warm up based on Cunningham and Limon exercises followed by larger more eclectic contemporary across the floor and center combinations. Open to intermediate/advanced dancers 14yrs through adult
