COMMUNITY DANCE CLASSES

Adults and mature teenagers of all levels and experience are encouraged to attend.  A typical class usually starts with a group warm‐up and technique and then an intermediate/advanced modern combination. Drop-ins welcome. No registration required. All off-season classes free of charge.

The Yard's Making It community dance classes are held during the summer season at The Yard's open-air studio, and in fall and winter seasons, from September to May, at various island locations and are taught by Making It Artist Educators.
