Marion Arts Center Announces Dance Academy, Watercolor Classes

The Marion Art Center recently announced the return of the MAC Dance Academy this fall and the return of the Adult Watercolor Class in September.

MAC Dance Academy is a classical dance studio that fosters the individuality of all dancers. This low-cost program offers dance lessons by Teah Keogh in ballet, tap and jazz, and touches on contemporary, hip-hop and gymnastics. The MAC will welcome a new instructor to assist Miss Teah and teach intermediate students.

The MAC Dance Academy takes place over two 10-week sessions in the fall and spring, with a five-week winter session in between. The 10-week fall session begins September 27. Dancers must wear masks inside the Marion Art Center. Tutors are invited to attend a course the last week of each session. Classes are available for children 3 to 8 years old. Classes for older children will be announced at a later date. No previous dance experience is required. The cost of a 10-week session is $175 for MAC members and $195 for non-members, while the cost of a five-week session is $95 for MAC members and $105 for non-members. Participants will receive a 10% discount when registering for all three sessions before the start of the first session. MAC Family Membership is required for reduced MAC Dance Academy tuition. Those unsure if their membership is up to date should call the MAC at 508-748-1266.
