Celebrating 34 years of Dance in Davis!
||Welcome to Fall Session II, with classes running from Monday, October 22 through Saturday, December 22!
We have multiple new classes beginning this fall, to better provide a broad range of training for all of those interested in
the performing arts whether you are interested in dance or acting as a possible profession or as a tool for wellness or
personal growth. From ballet to yoga and acting to scene study, we're looking forward to an exciting year.
Please remember that new students can begin at any time, as long as there is space in the class. Just click on the link
below to go directly to the schedule.
Also: Remember that October is National Arts Month and we celebrate with multiple free classes so that everyone
can try a new experience. Scroll down for a calendar view! Call for more information or to reserve a spot: 530-756-3949.
The Fall II Schedule is now posted on-line! We're excited to welcome several new teachers to the Dance Workshop,
including Sterling Anderson, award winning screenwriter and author, expanding our programs to include classes in
monologue and auditioning technique and scene studies for actors. We're also excited to welcome Laurie Kaden to our
ballet faculty as well as Ana Hansen, who will be teaching Dance for Musical Theatre and taking over the Pre-Tap and
Pre-Jazz for Ms Cheryl, who will return in January, after getting settled into her elementary school teaching schedule. In
addition, we're sending best wishes to Ms Eunique who has moved to San Bruno. New teacher Darrah Rosin will be joining
us, teaching Hip Hop for teens and adults, and new teacher Isabel Lavallee will take over the Hip Hop for youth.
Save the Dates: Sunday, October 28, Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3! It's time for the fall concert
Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre. This post-modern, contemporary dance company is celebrating its 34th season with a
new work, Darkness into Light. Feeling a little stressed out by today's world? We don't claim to have all the answers, but
we do have some! This 75 minute concert explores the impacts of today's technology, politics, and ethics on individual
stress levels as well as our ability to find balance in an increasingly chaotic world. Featuring dancers ranging in age from
10 - 88, this concert is appropriate for most ages. (Probably not babies!) Tickets are now on sale at the Dance Workshop
and will be on sale at Brown Paper Tickets. We'll post that link when we have it!
Art in 4 Dimensions is back! Are you a visual artist, musician, poet, choreographer or actor? Supported, in part, by a

March 1, & 2, 2019. Interested artists, choreographers, musicians, actors and poets are invited to submit applications to
participate in this collaborative arts project. Deadline to submit is October 16. Call for information or stop by the Dance
Workshop for an application.
Dance for Parkinson's Our Dance for Parkinson's classes are taught by Pamela Trokanski, with former PTDT dancer
and current Bikram Yoga instructor Erin Dunning returning as a class assistant! This is one of the Dance Theatre's
