Ballet Afrique - 5:30pm-7:00pm Ballet Afrique is a playful, beginner-friendly, original, community-oriented contemporary of West African dance, blended with the most accessible elements of ballet, modern and jazz. This form was created by Romy Keegan, in Albuquerque, NM. Ballet-Afrique is intended to intelligently build strength and stamina, while inspiring dancers to move with joy! The class structure does not build to a performance.

Contemporary - 7:00pm-8:00pm Contemporary dance (also called Modern Dance) is a kaleidoscope of movement, pulling inspiration from any and all sources. It is a form of dance that is constantly expanding and re-defining itself. This class is choreography-centric and is also beginner-friendly. The class structure does not build to a performance.
