The class will take place on Tuesday evenings from 5:00pm-6:30pm beginning on June 19th. The cost is $8.75 per class if paying by the month or $10 per drop-in class. We provide an environment where students of all ages from throughout Penobscot County can come together under the guidance of Adrian Matos to learn this exciting, energetic style of dance.

Join us to celebrate the first season of the Next Generation Youth Chorus. Students from throughout Penobscot county have come together to create fun music including Disney Dazzle (a Disney Movie Medley), Someone Like You (Adele) and Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight! Admission is free and the concert is sure to be a lot of fun!
For students interested in joining our Theater Summer Camp, auditions are on Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
