Dance Classes 

September 16 | St. Francis Music Center

Dance lessons for ages 3 and up will be offered at St. Francis Music Center, Little Falls, starting on Saturday, September 16. 

Dance classes at the Music Center follow a strong, age-appropriate dance curriculum designed to give young students an introduction to dance that covers basics in tap, ballet, jazz and creative movement. The main goal of the dance program is to teach dancers to be creative, physically fit, flexible, confident and artistic.

Dance classes will meet on Saturday mornings. There will be a class for 3-year-olds from 9-9:30 a.m.; 4-and 5-year-olds class will meet from 9:30-10:15 a.m.; 6-to 11-year-olds from 10:15-11 a.m., and 12 years and up from 11-11:45 a.m.

Missy O’Connell is the dance instructor. She is a group exercise instructor at the St. Cloud Family YMCA and is a kindergarten teacher at Athlos Academy. Missy also dances with the Minnesota Dance Ensemble, a nonprofit dance company specializing in modern and jazz.  Missy strongly believes that dance, in one form or another, is for everyone and her passion shows through her love of her students.
