Dance Class Sign-Ups!

DANCE ‘N BEATS DANCE is offering a summer dance session in conjunction with GEAR. These classes will be held at the Elizabeth Municipal Building. The summer session will meet twice per week beginning Thursday, June 4 and ending Tuesday, July 14. The dance classes are only available during the summer; please see class description(s) for details: 

Tiny Tots: Ages 2 ½ – 5

Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays Noon- 1:00PM

Description: This class will introduce a structured environment while allowing children to recognize their own individuality and body mobility, keeping students entertained while learning fun dance skills.

Cost:  $30 for all six weeks.

Lyrical Dance: Ages 6 -19

Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:30PM- 2:30PM

Description: This special summer class gives students the opportunity to experience lyrical dance, which combines techniques and skills from ballet, jazz, and modern dance. Students will also explore how lyrical dance emphasizes interpretation of music lyrics to tell a story with movement that can be fluid or abstract.

Cost:  $60 for all six weeks.

Hip-Hop: Ages 6 -19

Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:00PM- 4:00PM

Description: Hip hop is a high-energy class that infuses the latest styles of hip hop dance. Classes will encourage students to step outside of the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements.

Cost:  $60 for all six weeks.

PLEASE NOTE:  For anyone wanting to take both lyrical and hip-hop, the total will be $100 instead of $120.

To sign up for any of these classes, you must print the registration form, fill it out, and mail it in. CLICK HERE FOR THE REGISTRATION FORM. Please bring payment on the first day of class. There are two instructors per class. They will split classes based on ages and skill levels. These are the same classes that some of you completed a survey for earlier in the year. Please complete a registration form if you are still interested. Classes are in Elizabeth at the old school (former Highland campus) in the gym and in the Village Board room (Room 139).


Spring Soccer Schedule

GEAR Soccer starts TODAY! The Hanover field is still too muddy, so today’s practice will be in the Elizabeth Municipal Gym (formerly Highland West). Hopefully conditions will be good enough to play at the Hanover field next Sunday. K-2nd will practice from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, and 3rd-5th will practice from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. Please make sure your child has shin guards and clean gym shoes. We should have t-shirts by the second practice. Here is the schedule for the 2015 spring season (always 2:00 pm for younger kids, 3:00 pm for older kids, unless noted otherwise):

March 22nd—practice (Elizabeth gym)
March 29th—practice (Hanover field?)
April 5th—NO practice, Easter Sunday
April 12th—practice (Hanover field?)
April 19th—game at Hanover
April 25th (Saturday, 10:00 AM)—game at Stockton, only for grades 3rd-5th
April 26th—game at Hanover, 2:00 pm, only for grades K-2nd
May 3rd—game at Hanover, 2:00 younger kids, 3:00 older kids (older kids will play Stockton)

May 17th is a possibility if we need to reschedule a game. I probably wouldn’t schedule anything May 10th because of Mother’s Day.
