‘Ballet!’ for Youth

Recurring event see all

Thursday, February 24 @ 3:30 pm 4:45 pm

Eastport Arts Center’s intern, L. Elwood, will offer dance classes this winter at the Center. Classes will be held on a drop-in basis, with a suggested sliding scale donation. No previous dance experience is needed, and no dress code is required. “Wear what you can move in,” says Elwood.

For youth ages 8-15, Elwood will offer ‘Ballet!,’ a series of lively sessions exploring the foundational elements of the dance style, starting at barre, moving to center stage, and ending with combinations across the floor. “Pirouettes and grand jetés will abound,” says Elwood.” ‘Ballet!’ Will be held Thursdays from 3:30-4:45 pm Thursdays, starting February 24 and running through April 14.

L. Elwood recently graduated from Oberlin College with a BA in Dance and Theater and has been teaching and choreographing dance since 2016. She serves as EAC’s intern, focusing on co-leading Children’s Theater Workshop and giving the Center a vibrant social media presence. Questions about any of the classes may be addressed to Elwood at elwood@eastportartscenter.org

Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport and eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible. EAC abides by State of Maine CDC COVID guidelines. Additionally, at this time, patrons are required to wear masks when in the EAC building.
