Fall Classes for Adults

Adult classes are a mix between classes taught by Chapel Theatre staff, and classes taught by other teachers, companies, or organizations that rent space from Chapel Theatre. The classes noted below with an Asterix (*) are offered by Chapel Theatre staff.

Mondays: Beginner Ballet

  • Session 1: September 12-October 17
  • $85/session or $15 drop in
  • 5:30-6:45pm
  • Adult Beginner Ballet
  • Taught by TriptheDark’s Taylor McDougall*

This adult open ballet class is targeted towards new ballet dancers or returning dancers. If you used to take ballet but it’s been a minute, this class is excellent for brushing up on those rusty ballet skills. If you’ve never taken ballet and think this is the time to start, TriptheDark dancer, Taylor, will teach you the basics and work with you to learn what you need to know to get started. Ballet is great for balance, flexibility, and strength!

Tuesdays: Dance Fitness

  • $85/session or $15 drop in7:15-8:30pm
  • Ziggy Stardust: A Bowie Dance Fitness Experience
  • Taught by TriptheDark’s Corinn deTorres*

It’s Bowie, it’s dance, it’s fitness all rolled into one. This class is open to all levels of dancer from beginner to advanced. The focus is on getting a good sweat on and learning a dance piece at the same time. We will build on choreography each week, so best to sign up for the series, but we will review each week’s choreo if you miss or if you drop in.

Thursdays: Flamenco

  • 6:30-7:30pm Beginner
  • 7:30-8:30pm Intermediate

Classes are inclusive and focused on building body awareness, community, and cultural knowledge in a relaxed, supportive, and fun environment. I love to share my lifelong passion for and devotion to the arts with others.

Fridays: Beginner/Intermediate Jazz
