Now presenting…The New Lenox Community Park District “Galaxy Dancers” dance troupe! From the graceful movement of ballet, to the synchronized sounds of tapping toes, we have it all! No special shoes are required for this shortened session. Suggested dance attire: shorts or leotards, soft slippers or socks for Ballet and hard soled shoes for Tap. Parents will be invited to attend the last class.

Due to priority registration of current dance participants, there are limited spaces available. This is a progressive program open to both girls and boys. Students will be divided according to age in the following classes.
  • Pre Ballet: An introduction to basic steps and positions. Students will learn a fun song-and-dance routine.
  • Ballet: An excellent background for all dance and sport activities. Poise and grace are enhanced through the technique and structure of a ballet class.
  • Tap: Shuffle on in for a faster paced class; improve rhythm while enjoying this all-time favorite dance style.
  • Jazz: Fast action steps and new dance moves will be incorporated into a great routine to popular music. Move to the groove for a terrific workout.
