Dual enrollment and Continuing Education opportunities are available through Southern Union State Community College’s Dance Department this fall.
Students will be admitted into the Wednesday evening dance class scheduled for 3:30 to 6 p.m.; new students will not be accepted spring term. This class is available to 7 through 12th grade students who are currently enrolled in a dance studio and who have taken at least three years of dance.
Dancers in grades 7 to 10 can enroll through the continuing education program. College credit may be available for students in these grade levels who have a gifted status. Dancers in grades 11 and 12 can enroll as a dual enrolled student and earn college credit.
The class is 1 hour and 15 minutes of jazz (and occasional musical theatre) taught by Director of Dance Sonja Fincher, and another hour and 15 minutes of ballet/pointe (with an occasional lyrical) taught by Andrea Costa. The class runs Aug. 19 through Nov. 25 in person. The classes on Dec. 2 and 9 will both be held online.
Performance opportunities are available, and all costumes are provided by the college. The cost is $320 per semester. Please contact Fincher at email@example.com if you are interested. Fall classes begin Aug. 17. Registration is now open.
