Just a few days before fall classes begin there in earnest, “Ponder On This!” will take over the stage at Barking Legs Theater from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24. With eight different classes being sampled in 30-minute blocks, there’s something for everyone. For kids ages 5-7, there’s “Creative Dance for Kids” with Jarred Clemons at 10 a.m., and for kids ages 4-10, there’s “Creative Movement” with Nina Jones at 1:30 p.m. There’s even one adults only class: “Seduce ’Em!” with Jarred Clemons at 10:30 a.m.
For teens and just about everyone else ages 15 and up, there are plenty of options. For starters, there’s “Contemporary Funk” with Bernadette Upton at 11 a.m., “Dance Improvisation” with Ann Law at 11:30 a.m., “Lyrical Hip-Hop” with Devante Williams at 12:30 p.m., and “Hip-Hop” with Bernadette Upton at 1 p.m. Then there’s a show that’s inclusive of all ages from 1 to 92, “A Contemporary Release of Modern Contemporary Dance” with Maite Bou at noon.
The fall class offerings, ranging from children’s programs to adult dancing, feature a wide variety of dance. Sessions begin August 26. If you’re considering signing up for one of these classes, you would be remiss to skip out on “Ponder On This!” since you can sample upcoming classes, and decide which ones are for you.
