Registration is now open for the 2022-2023 Season of classes offered by Movement Arts Atlanta. The season includes classes for ages 3+ through adults. There are Kinderdance classes for the youngest dancers, ballet and modern for elementary ages students, a ballet class just for boys aged 8+ and ballet for adults. New for the season are Saturday classes for ages 3-6 and a new discount level for families with multiple students who take also take multiple classes per week.
MAA’s classes offer limited class size, professional instruction, inclusive tuition and a schedule that ensures that students receive full class time.
Small class size ensures that classes are enjoyable, engaging and educational for the students. Classes for students ages 3-6 are limited to six students. For ballet for children ages 7+, classes are limited to 8. And, for Multi-Age Modern class size is limited to 12. These levels are well below the average in the Atlanta area.
MAA’s Director, Carolyn Stine McLaughlin, who teaches all of MAA’s classes, has more that 30 years of teaching experience. She received her teacher training from the well-regarded program at Virginia Intermont College. Additionally, she has taken teacher training courses from Finis Jhung and Ernesta Corvino. She is also active in the Atlanta dance community, producing the Inman Park Dance Festival and arts project through MAA (A Time with Isadora) and serving on the board of Full Radius Dance.
Tuition for classes at MAA in inclusive of class instruction and all expenses associate with participation in the Annual Student Recital. Most schools charge registration fees, costume fees and charge for tickets to student performances. The Annual Student Recital is presented as a short story ballet with handmade costumes. These costumes stay with MAA and are reused, similar to what a professional ballet company would do.
MAA schedules its classes with a 15-minute buffer between classes. To our knowledge, no other dance school in the area does this. This allows for students and parents to be greeted and sent off from class with ease. It also makes sure that each class receives its full time of instruction. There is factually no way one class can end and another start at the same time.
Movement Arts Atlanta celebrates its 10th Anniversary with the 2022-2023 Season, and we hope you will be a part of this wonderful millstone!
