Adult Dance? Yes! Yes! Yes!

Thank you Dance Magazine for this thoughtful article bringing awareness and validity to the Adult Dance Community! https://www.dancemagazine.com/why-adult-ballet-students-should-be-taken-seriously-2639960052.html?share_id=4827776&fbclid=IwAR1i4-lm4aWBdSlKjE1yLKYBYsXtZA5TzmBoGnsrEBYjaBTbd2POhlzsXV0

At SkunkWorks, we absolutely LOVE working with Adult Dancers of all ages and levels, and we look forward to growing our program within this coming new year. To us, our adults dancers carry as much importance as our youth students that come through our studio. We believe that a thriving dance community is achieved through inclusivity and learning from one another at every age and level.

Our Adult Dance Program started with our Director Jana Bennett's passion for teaching adult dancers. Working with adult dancers has been an imperative part of her dance journey since she was an aspiring student.

Jana stated,

"I grew up in such an inclusive dance environment where pre-professional youth dancers often shared the space with adult dancers. Because of this training, I learned from a very early age to value the incredible detail, intricacy and emotional connectivity that adult dancers of all levels brought into dance.

When I began my teaching, I knew that it was so important for me to work with adult dancers and have enjoyed every minute of it ever since. I find so much joy and personal growth teaching humans with life experience that is beyond my own. We find so much collaboration in class through the sharing of our different perspectives, expertise and knowledge through dance. My adult classes are a magical space."
