APSU’s Community School for the Arts hosts inaugural dance recital, announces summer arts classes
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – In February, the Community School of the Arts (CSA) at Austin Peay State University kicked off a semester of dance classes – creative movement, ballet, contemporary and jazz – for community members of all ages, and on Saturday, May 8, those participants showed off their new skills with the CSA’s inaugural dance recital.
“The CSA Dance Recital was an amazing experience,” Ebonè Amos, CSA and APSU dance instructor, said. “Each performance was a testament, not only to the students’ hard work, but also to how much fun they had with each other during class. I was very proud and thankful that the community came out to show their support of the dancers.”
Now, after a successful spring semester, the CSA is ready to launch a new series of summer arts classes and workshops. The program is easing back into in-person classes this summer, but safety during this ongoing pandemic remains the CSA’s top priority. That means each class has a maximum size limit that allows the students to safely distance themselves.
And because all classes are held on the APSU campus, the program must adhere to the University’s COVID-19 guidelines. With social distancing limiting class sizes, interested participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
The CSA’s 4-week summer classes include:
- Art for Children (art materials included in price)
- Drawing (art materials included in price)
- Mixed Media Painting (art materials included in price)
- The Short Film (no are materials needed)
- Figure Drawing Workshop (art materials and model fee included in price)
- Digital Photography Workshop
- Dance Combo (Ballet, Tap, and Jazz)
- Beginning Guitar
- Beginning Ukulele
- Rock Band Camp
“We will continue to offer the incredible price of $5 an hour for instruction,” Dawn Martin Dickins, CSA coordinator said. “However, there are some classes that will have additional fees due to needed materials and assistants. Needless to say, it’s still a pretty sweet deal!”
