Ellen Robbins Offers Dance Classes in Three New Locations

Ellen Robbins Offers Dance Classes in Three New Locations

Ellen Robbins, who has been teaching dance for more than 35 years, recently opened three new locations of her dance studio, Ellen Robbins Dance Classes for Children and Teenagers. The studio offers dance classes for kids in Manhattan.

Ellen Robbins has been helping kids discover the joys of modern dance for more than 35 years. She is a decorated dance educator who has taught in schools and dance companies around the country and abroad. At Ellen Robbins Dance Classes for Children and Teenagers, the seasoned choreographer teaches modern dance to students ages 5-18 and has recently opened registration for classes in three new locations. Classes are grouped by age and will be held six days a week in the new Chelsea, Soho, or Union Square locations throughout the school year.

From the youngest dancers to more experienced pupils, the classes emphasize a range of diverse styles and movements to embody the creative spirit of each student. Dancers are given many opportunities to explore their individuality as well as participate in-group work.

The study of modern dance is about striking a balance between creativity, dedication, passion, and practice. It is the truest form of self-expression, says Robbins, whose method of teaching incorporates technique, improvisation, and composition. Each young dancer who studies with Robbins is given the unique opportunity to choreograph their own solo composition to be performed at a recital at the end of the year.

Each year, Robbins also selects a number of students to be featured in the Dances by Very Young Choreographers concert, presented by NY Live Arts on Dec. 5-6. Robbins, who has been organizing these choreography showcases for more than 20 years, believes that the concerts are a valuable source of inspiration to the dancers.

Registration is open now for a limited number of students.
