Join us for some fun dancing this winter! Though we cannot hold in-person classes at our normal Park District locations, we encourage students from Loyola Park, Berger Park and beyond to continue taking classes with us, online. Synapse Teaching Artists Tim Tsang and Laura Tennal co-teach an 8 week session combining jazz and hip hop, ending with a mini virtual performance for students!

We look forward to connecting with students in Rogers Park and across Chicago this coming year and keeping the joy of dance alive in our community. Join us for dance class and find out more about Synapse Arts at www.synapsearts.com.

Synapse Arts is in residency at Loyola Park and Berger Park Cultural Center through the Chicago Park District’s Arts Partners in Residence Program, which unites artists and communities in Chicago's parks.

This class introduces students to music and movement from both styles with progressive warm ups and fun combinations. Hip Hop instruction includes elements of popping, locking, breaking, and improvisation. Jazz instruction includes stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and dance combinations. The class will culminate with a virtual “mini-performance” on the last day, where students will be encouraged to invite friends and family members to join the Zoom session and watch them dance!

Classes will be held virtually via Zoom. Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing that allows movement and to use a space in the house where they are free to move safely. Socks or soft-soled shoes are recommended. Taught by Synapse Teaching Artists Tim Tsang and Laura Tennal.
