Robert Mann Dance Centre in Bayside to Offer Expanded Modern and Contemporary Classes

The Robert Mann Dance Centre, Inc., in Bayside will be offering expanded modern and contemporary dance classes for teens and more classes for younger children when the new school year starts on September 5. The modern and contemporary classes for teens will be held on Tuesdays, 6:30pm to 7:30pm. The classes will be structured with time for warm-ups, center floor work, traveling movements, combinations, routines, and cool downs. All students will learn the proper names and techniques and execution of each dance step. 

Children ages 2.5 to 6.5 can take part in the school's Young Dancers programs. More classes in pre-dance, first-stop dance, and combination of tap nad pre-ballet will be offered. 

The school is expanding classes this year to provide more opportunities for young dancers to achieve their professional goals. According to owner Robert Mann, modern and contemporary dance have become prerequisites for entry into many professional schools and colleges.

Whether a child is dancing for fun or working towards a future career, dance can provide numerous personal and professional benefits, says Mann.

"Dance students are very disciplined, hardworking, high achieving, and will work as hard as they have to to achieve their goals," says Mann. "These are characteristics that they carry with them through their entire lives. Many, many of our graduates submit college applications and are accepted with scholarships into some of the top colleges and universities in the country.”

The Robert Mann Dance Centre has been a mainstay in Queens for more than 50 years. All teachers are professional dancers. Students have been accepted into dance programs in professional schools such as La Guardia High School of Performing Arts, Frank Sinatra School of Performing Arts and the Julliard School.

Registration for all classes is open. More information is available on the website.
