The Alloy School

Movement and dance is for everyBODY.

The Alloy School is a creative community where individuality is celebrated and all gender expressions and cultures are welcome. In this safe space, learning is a guided collaboration between our teaching artists and the participants. Through The Alloy School’s non-competitive environment, youth, adults, and families of all experience levels can share in the joy of movement while developing body awareness, coordination, and esteem.

The Alloy School Fall 2022 session spans 8-weeks of Saturdays at KST’s Alloy Studios from Saturday September 24 – November 12 with a public showcase and celebratory Let’s Move! Family Dance Party on November 19. Each Saturday from 10:00am to 1:00pm, expert teaching artists guide six 50-minutes classes in KST’s two dance studios that cater to participants from toddlers to elders in a comfortable and engaging atmosphere.

Every session is taught by professional artists and designed to teach you new moves and give you insight into the cultural roots of these different styles! The whole family can enjoy The Alloy School’s diverse range of classes from West African to Jazz Ballet. Classes are conducted with a casual atmosphere where various forms of attire including leotard, pajamas, business suit, or costume are all welcomed! Bring your whole self–we can’t wait to welcome you to The Alloy School community!

Registration for the full 8-week session is encouraged, though participants are also welcome to drop in for classes throughout. Registration begins at $12.50/class.
