Skyline Dance Studio offers classes for all ages

By Vivian Collings
Walking into Skyline Dance on Monday, Mar. 20, all that could be heard from the hallway were joyful sounds of laughter and the tip-tapping of metal shoes to the beat of Shania Twain’s Man, I Feel Like a Woman.
For listeners and watchers, it’s hard to hold back from joining in.
“The experience has been wonderful, something I’ve wanted to do for many years,” said Lisa Werry, a participant in the 55+ tap class. “My favourite part is learning something new to me. I have never tap danced or taken any formal lessons at all. I am learning a lot.”
Skyline Dance Studio will be offering more adult and senior dance classes during their spring session.
Melissa Valentini, business development/marketing lead at Skyline Dance Studio, said their goal is to great opportunities for all ages to experience the benefits of dance.
“Our mission from the very beginning was to keep dance local and keep families local and we are very happy to add opportunities for the active adults and seniors in Haliburton County,” Valentini said.
Their first adult session offered pilates, barre burn, tap, and heels, and they are now including ballroom dancing and hip hop.
“All our adults’ classes are run at a beginner level so everyone can participate, it is about moving your body, having fun and supporting a great non-profit organization in the process,” Valentini said.
Skyline’s spring session classes begin the week of April 17. Registration is now open to Skyline families, and newcomers can register here:
