The 2019-2020 Season of Movement Arts Atlanta will begin on August 11 and registration is open for all students. Celebrating its 7th year of serving students and families, MAA offers high-quality classes for ages 3+ with small class size, professional instruction and modest tuition rates.
Class schedule, description and tuition rates are available here.
Children’s instruction begins with Kinderdance for ages three and four. This leads to the study of classical ballet for ages five and six with Ballet I. As the child gets older, tap is added to improve rhythm, support balance and foster performance quality. As students reach early adolescence, ladies add pointe work to their ballet vocabulary.
Class size is limited for all of MAA classes. This is to ensure individual attention for all students, both children and adults. This is particularly important for younger students so that they learn that dance class is a time of focused, joyful work.
MAA’s primary instructor and director, Carolyn Stine McLaughlin, has more than 30 years of teaching experience. As a native of Atlanta she trained with Southern Ballet of Atlanta. She then attended Virginia Intermont College which was highly respected for its teacher training curriculum. She has danced professionally and is the founder and director of the annual Inman Park Dance Festival.
Tuition for MAA classes is paid as a flat fee per semester. Instead of charging separate registration, tuition and recital fees, two semester payments include all costs related to participating in classes except for clothing and shoes. Rates begin at $19 per hour and discounts are applied for multiple students per family and for multiple classes per student.
Movement Arts Atlanta is an excellent choice for dance training in town for both children and adults. MAA looks forward to being of service to you and your family.
