About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, October 22, 2022.

These are more focused, accelerated ballet classes with a goal of emphasis on technique and enhanced performance skills. Ages 7 & Up. Dancer must be evaluated by the instructor to participate in Company Ballet.
Instructor Sandy Griffin has been a dance educator for over 40 years and is beginning her 17th year at CRPD. She has had extensive training as a dancer with many renowned teachers and performers, has judged many dance competitions, professionally danced in ballet and musicals, and has owned her own dance studio in Marietta. She has been educated in the RAD syllabus for teaching beginning-professional levels at the Royal Ballet School in London, England.
Instructor Andrea Walker began dancing at the age of three with the CRPD Dance Program. While in the program as a student, she discovered her love for teaching while assisting with various classes. Andrea attended many master classes and intensives at Brenau University, Kennesaw State, and Bandan Koro. She graduated with honors from Tyler College in Texas, where she majored in Dance with a focus in Dance Education. While at school, she taught at a local pre-professional dance school, performed in several of the college's dance shows, choreographed a piece for their annual student-faculty recital, and worked as an assistant to the director of the school's annual Nutcracker production.
Instructor Jennifer Spencer danced for 14 years under the direction of Joanne Plimpton, who employed the Al Gilbert school of technique in tap, jazz and ballet. During that time, Jennifer taught under Ms. Plimpton as well. She attended the University of Alabama, where she danced under the instruction of Cornelius Carter, a former member of the Alvin Ailey Dance theatre. Also, the respected Edie Barnes (who was a transforming factor in the dance program at Alabama) was a mentor and teacher. She is currently a teacher and coach at Denmark High School in Forsyth County.
