Take To Your Feet for 2007’s Dance Day Benefit

With countless opportunities to view dance performances from all over the world, here’s your chance to learn and practice a variety of them for just $1 a class. Whether you’re curious, looking to get fit for bikini season, trying to impress your girlfriend with a few new moves, or sick of Sunday spring cleaning, this is an open event for you to take advantage of! See for details.

1) Be a promoter of the arts! Proceeds from the day go to the S.B. Dance Alliance Scholarship Fund, which supports young dancers engaged in the serious study of dance and choreography. This means that at just one buckaroo per class, the more you take, the more you help out the future of the local art scene.

2) Be saucy, sassy, and-gangsta? Well yes, or something like that. One of the many classes offered is a teen/adult beginning and advanced hip-hop class that fuses funk and style to give even the worst dancers-up-in-da-club a better shot. Other classes include rumba, waltz, salsa, the night club two-step, modern, jazz, ballroom, and hula.

3) Be anywhere! The “tour de danse” is going down from Goleta to Santa Ynez. If you are a Sunday State-Streeter, catch a class at Golden Tree Yoga, Montecito School of Ballet, or other nearby studios. If you enjoy garage sales in Goleta, then pop on over to Rhythm Dance & Fitness Studios for some heavy duty hip-hop. And finally, if you enjoy the quieter side of life in Santa Ynez, prepare yourself for the uplifting aerial dance classes at Daughter of Zion dance studio.
