|Dance Workshop News & Updates
Celebrating 34 years of Dance in Davis!
|Welcome to Fall Session I, with classes running from Monday, August 27 through Saturday, October 20!
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

The Fall 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 and
Emily Reisenaur 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.
Art in 4 Dimensions is back! Are you a visual artist, musician, poet, choreographer or actor? Come and join us on
Sunday, September 23 from 12:30 - 1:30 for an informational meeting regarding this year's Art in 4 Dimensions. It's an
opportunity to collaborate with other artists to create works of art for performance. We'll be meeting in the Studio Theater
at the Dance Workshop. Supported, in part, by a grant from the City of Davis Arts & Cultural Affairs program, and
produced by Pamela Trokanski, the performance is set for March 1, & 2, 2019, so this gives us several months to prepare!
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
community outreach programs, done in partnership with the Mondavi Center for the Arts & The Mark Morris Dance Group.
Our fall classes will begin on Tuesday, September 11 and run through Tuesday November 13.
Do you, or someone you know, have Parkinson's Disease? These classes are about having fun and getting exercise
within a community that understands your needs. To find out more about this program, including how to register for this
