Dance classes planned with Trillium Performing Arts Collective

It’s not too late to enroll in fall dance classes at Trillium Performing Arts Collective. Sixteen classes, each taught in seven- to eight-week sessions, cover a variety of different disciplines ranging from contemporary to yoga.

Classes are held onstage at the Lewis Theatre, Carnegie Hall’s dance studio, and at a nearby studio.

The first session starts Tuesday and you can pre-register or at the beginning of each class (please arrive early).

Along with core classes of contemporary dance in age groups from 7–teen, Trillium is offering some new classes this year in folk dance, poetry, and making dances.

Beginning Folk dance will be for ages 12 through adult and taught by Ross Weisiger.

Poetry is for ages 16 through adult taught by local poet Sarah Elkins.

Making dances, taught by Samara Michaelson, will help students age 10-adult create their own pieces for solo or group work.

Popular classes, such as hip hop for youth and adults, and Creative Movement for Pre-K and kindergartners and age 5-6, will again be offered. For wellness and spiritual strengthening we have Improvisational Dance, Qi Gong, and two types of Yoga.

Trillium encourages dancers and artists to develop many talents. Any student who enrolls in a contemporary dance class will receive a 20 percent discount off all other classes that student registers for during that session.

Applications for financial assistance are still available for future sessions. For more information on scholarships, classes or registrations please contact the Trillium office at 304-645-3003, come to 115 N Court St. in Lewisburg, or e-mail
