Beginning in April 1, Greenville Public Middle Schools are introducing an after-school dance program for beginning and experienced dancers. The program will offer students the opportunity to foster and enrich their dance education through the development of technical proficiency and artistic growth. Solomon and Coleman Middle Schools will each be holding three sessions for a group of 8-15 students, providing exposure to new styles of dance techniques in a setting that will allow them to interact closely with a skilled instructor.
Brianne Connelly of Lake Village, AR will be teaching the classes, bring over 14 years of experience as a dancer and instructor to the program. Ms. Connelly is an alumna of the Lake Village Teach for America Corps, where she formed the Lakeside Middle School Dance Team. She has taught community dance classes at several different locations, including the Hodding Carter Memorial YMCA and Greenville Higher Education Center. Ms. Connelly has experience teaching Hip Hop, Zumba, Aerobic Dance, Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Line, Folk, Tap, Latin, African, and Chinese dances and will be sharing a variety of dance styles and techniques with the participating students.
