The Upper Peninsula arts & culture scene just got bigger! New Attitudes is excited to announce two new programs we’re offering for the 2021-22 dance season: Studio Gymnastics with Skylar Taavola and Studio Theatre with Liz Grugin!
Studio Gymnastics with Skylar is open to students of all ages. Skylar Taavola is a former Negaunee High School All Around gymnasts and regional qualifier. She is also a former assistant for the Community Schools gymnasts classes. In these sessions, gymnasts will be able to participate in tumbling, low bar, balance beam, and strength training.
Private lessons are $40 per hour and semi private (2-3 kids) are $30 per child.
Studio Theatre with Liz is open to ages 8-18, where students get to use their creativity as they gain knowledge in the process that leads to a successful performance. Liz Grugin is a local performer with a bachelor’s degree in Voice Performance from University of Michigan. She’s been performing on the Kaufman Auditorium stage since she was 4 years old when she was in her first NADS Dance recital. Sessions will focus on acting tips and vocal coaching, with no experience necessary. Younger students will have fun as they explore the basics of theatre and come up with their own ideas for scenes and characters. More advanced students with previous experience will enhance their performance techniques through thoughtful character development and presentation.
Private sessions are $40, and semi private (up to 3 people) are $30 per person.
Please visit Studio Gymnastics with Skylar and Studio Theatre with Liz on their respective Facebook pages to view availability and sign up for sessions. Lessons are one hour with disinfecting between each. You can always contact Skylar or Liz directly if the times listed do not work with your schedule.
Please note that you do not need to be a NADS student to enroll. Everyone is welcome!!! A love for movement and performance is the only requirement!
