Dance opportunities in Atlanta this week

While ballet is not typically on the agenda for the 4th of July weekend, we have a number of dance events that parents may want to attend with their children or perhaps have their children participate.

This week continues the free community dance training classes at Blackburn Park. Mornings from 8am until noon, children ages 3 to 12 will find an introductory class suitable for their age range.  Each day a new form of dance is taught given a broad spectrum of dance styles including ballet, hip hop, jazz and two days of free style Thursday and Friday.

Look for our registration table at the far end of the park near the picnic rental pavilion. No need to pre register.  Our goal is to make this as easy as possible to introduce youngsters to dance.  Come one day or come for all. If you have a moment where you’re not sure where to take your child for the morning or you want to get them out of the house for some fun, bring them over to the park for our one hour classes.

During each hour of the morning, an age appropriate class will start so there will always be an opportunity for your child to participate. We encourage you to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of a class, which will always be on the hour, so we can get your child registered and introduce them to others waiting for the class and get them acclimated.

We thank the Blackburn Park staff and Parks Director who are allowing us to take up the entire west end of the park for our dance instruction this week. Come out for some fun, introduce your child to dance and meet some of your neighbors at our community dance classes this week!
