Class Descriptions:

Dance/Cheer:
This class is designed to improve self-confidence, physical health, and teamwork skills all while having a ton of fun! Learn and perfect arm movements, cheers, chants, and choreography that are full of excitement and energy. This is a type of dance which includes turns, toe touches, split jumps, split leaps, and more, with sharp fast paced combinations incorporating the use of pom poms. (dance terminology taught)

Ballet/Tap: 
Ballet – the basis of all dance forms, is a definite necessity for any aspiring dancer. This class is focused on developing strength, balance, technique, and proper body placement. You will learn to create flexibility through barre and floor work, while developing grace and learning terminology.
Tap – Tap steps, rhythms, combinations, and more will be used to teach students how to develop rhythm and musicality in tap dance
Combo classes are designed to give the dancer a taste of two different styles of dance.

HipHop: 
Class includes warm-up followed by age-appropriate, energetic dance combinations to the latest Hip-Hop tracks. Emphasis is on developing individual style. A fun and fabulously funky dance class in a no-pressure environment!

$5 suggested donation for each class. All are welcome regardless of ability to pay. Thank you for supporting ArtBeat.

We are changing things up – just like life with kids!

We are very sad to announce that our beloved dance teacher, Miss Shannon can no longer teach on Wednesdays due to a change in her work schedule.

However, ArtBeat has found an amazing NEW dance teacher, Miss Sarah. Here is a brief bio:

Sarah Avila Celedon has 28 years of experience in dance. She has been classically trained in ballet by the civic ballet of San Luis Obispo. She has also studied various styles of dance including; Jazz, Tap, hip-hop, lyrical, and Contemporary. She has also choreographed for several musical theater productions in San Luis Obispo County, most recently Thoroughly Modern Millie for Coast Union High School (CUHS). She also has years of experience participating in different Cheer and Dance teams, such as the Dallas Cowboys.

We are currently working on a new schedule and will post ASAP. There will be NO DANCE tomorrow (9/19).

“Change Brings Opportunity” – Nido Qubein

ArtBeat 2018 Fall/Winter Semester 

For those interested in Homework Club – The Coast Union School District is now providing after school help with homework. Please check with your child’s school for more details, thank you. ArtBeat is extremely grateful to the CUSD, principals and teachers for their continued support in this very important program.

$5 suggested donation for all ArtBeat classes. All are welcome regardless of ability to pay 

MONDAYS: VETS HALL, CAMBRIA
BAILE FOLKLORICO
3:15pm – 4pm – 3yrs – 8yrs

4pm – 4:45pm – 8yrs – 18yrs

Folklorico allows students from all backgrounds to experience and understand dance as a component of the Mexican heritage, while also giving Mexican-American students a special opportunity to identify with and learn about their culture. Lots of performance opportunities! Come and join the fun 

Due to fundraising and generous grants from our community, ArtBeat will soon be able to provide shoes and costumes for your student. For more information, please talk to our instructor, Carmen.

SING! (combined with Ukulele)
5pm Ages 6yrs – 18yrs

“The only thing better than singing…is more singing!” (Ella Fitzgerald). Enrichment through the power of singing creates powerful bonds that result in a collective and soulful joy. At “Sing” we will share an eclectic mix of vocal music from all eras and genres from around the world as we combine fun, energy and a love of learning music. “A child who sings is a happy child.”
Due to fundraising and generous grants from our community, ArtBeat will soon be able to provide ukuleles to students that are interested in learning. For more information, please talk to our instructor, Kate.

TUESDAYS – VETS HALL

GUITAR (begins 9/11/18)
3:30PM – 4:15PM
From our instructor, Samuel, “Guitar class is a challenge for many of the students who first join. Their fingers don’t always do what their brain wants, and there are lots of physical adjustments that are uncomfortable at first. Throughout our lessons the students begin to recognize a strength within themselves and an empathy for others, as each student slowly yet surely overcomes the struggle that comes with learning guitar. Important too, that parents often come and sit in on the Guitar class, taking notes on what their child is learning, and perhaps learning a little bit themselves by association. This kind of family oriented learning is a wonderful byproduct of after-school programs in general, and is emotionally profound for music students in specific, who feel supported by their parent and teacher in equal parts.”

WEDNESDAYS – VETS HALL
DANCE!
2:45pm – 3:30pm Creative Combo (Ballet/Tap) 3yrs – 6yrs

3:30pm – 4:15pm Combo1 (Ballet/Tap) 5yrs – 7yrs

4:15pm – 5pm Combo2 (Ballet/Tap) 7yrs – 18yrs

5pm – 5:45pm HipHop 6yrs – 18yrs

Come and join Miss Shannon every Wednesday. Physical fitness is just one of the many benefits of dance that can enhance your child’s life in so many ways. Dance also builds a child’s confidence and self esteem.

**New routines for upcoming performances will begin 9/5/18**

THURSDAYS – @SMALL WONDERS PRESCHOOL
YOGA!
11:30am 2yrs – 5yrs

Come and join a fun yoga session with your preschool aged child. This class is also open to children not enrolled in Small Wonders.
Physically, yoga will enhance their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. A win win!

Winter Performance Information to all Dancers from Miss Shannon:

I am very excited for our winter performance on Tuesday December 12th at the Vets Hall! The performance begins at 7pm, but I will need my dancers there a little bit early to practice and get ready!

All dancers should arrive at 6pm so we can get costumed and practice the dances prior to the performance. If your dancer is in the creative combo class (2:45-3:30pm) they will need to arrive at 6:30, since they are younger the less wait time the better!

All dancers should have their hair in a bun prior to showing up. Make up is optional. If your dancer is in a ballet dance they will need pink tights and a black leotard. If they’re in a tap or hip hop dance they will need black leggings. I will provide tutus for the ballet dances and shirts for the tap/hip hop dances.

If you have any questions feel free to call or text me! I am very excited for our show and hope to see you all there!

Although I will be bringing all costumes for the dancers, I would like them to show up in all black ( unless you have a dancer doing barnyard boogie). Black
leggings and a black tank top or t-shirt will be perfect. Some costumes may be
handed out the week before so be alert in class. If it is hot that day dancers can
come in regular clothes and bring dance clothes to change into.
Hair needs to be pulled back in a slick ponytail with no hair out (bangs should be
pulled back). Hairspray and gel are always helpful!
Make up is optional for all dancers but if you choose to wear it, a smokey eye and
red lips are preferred.
The performance starts Wednesday July 19th at 1:00pm and will be held on the Alberson stage on
the fairgrounds (stage next to Jimmy’s Watering Hole). Every dancer will get one
free admission pass for that day, parents must pay to get into the fair. I will be at
the front gate between 12-12:30 to hand out the pass so if you need it earlier or
are gonna be later than that I need you to contact me prior to.
