Dance Workshop News & Updates
Celebrating 34 years of Dance in Davis!
Welcome to the New Year! Winter classes began Monday, January 7, although dancers can start at any time (as
long as there is room in the class in which you are interested.)

Also, please note that the Dance Workshop is open on MLK Day... We celebrate with dance!

Winter Schedule is posted on-line!  Your favorite classes return along with some exciting changes. The Dance
Workshop is welcoming new teacher, Shontea Evans, to our Hip Hop teaching faculty. (See picture and bio below) Twelve of
our dancers met her on December 6, when they took class with her and had a
great time! She'll be teaching on Tuesdays,
beginning January 8, from 5:00 - 6:00pm. PTDW teacher Darrah Rosin will be teaching on Mondays, from 6:30 - 7:30pm.
(Beginning in the winter session)

And, because we've had such a demand for Intro to Dance and Pre-Ballet A, we've opened up two new classes! There is now a
second Intro to Dance on Saturdays, from 10:30 - 11:15, taught by teacher Ana Hansen, and Pamela is adding a Pre-Ballet A
to Mondays, from 3:30 - 4:15.

Last year, we celebrated 33 years of dance in Davis with a wonderful student concert in May... And because it
includes so many of our dancers, from 4 year olds to adults, from classical ballet, to contemporary, tap, and's now time
to think about the
34th Annual Student Concert... We have the registration / information sheets at the studio now for people
to pick up. The deadline to turn them in is Saturday, January 26.

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. After a break
for the winter holidays, we'll resume classes on Tuesday, January 15. Winter classes will run for 10 weeks to March 19. After
that, we'll take a one week break and then return to classes for the spring from April 2 - June 4.

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 free class, just
