My sister recently moved to Chicago and wants to take dance classes. I live in Minneapolis and we have pretty good adult continuing education stuff, like this. I just got a newsletter from them today and am stoked about possibly taking a class for next to nothing. So I thought, hey! Chicago must have something like this!
I have Googled to little avail. Anyone in Chicago know if there’s something like community education for pretty cheap, around the brown line area?
I came in to mention the same thing. They are very serious about dance. I don’t mean serious in a bad way, either, I’ve taken many classes there (not dance, though) and it’s always a wonderfully positive environment.
The classes aren’t really cheap, though–I’d love to get into some of the dance classes, but I can’t afford anything else and I’m really invested in the ones I’m taking now. The dance students are always excited (and sweaty), and when I look through the classroom window they always look like they’re having a blast.
That looks great, just the type of think I was looking for. Yeah, it is a little pricey, but I know that our parents were willing to get her a class for some sort of gift, so that’ll help her get involved.
I was really surprised that I couldn’t find any sort of community center doing dance classes, but I suspect that a more serious place is more what she’s looking for. And I think she’d get a kick out of volunteering, too. I know she’d love to teach dance, or be involved in some way with a studio. Thanks!
