Fairmount Center for the Arts
Fairmount Center for the Arts, a three time “Best of East” award winner, announces its fall 2021 session of programs. Registration is underway and classes and music lessons begin the week of August 30. Come express yourself and grow through the ARTS!
Programming includes classes in dance, theatre, music, visual arts and fitness. Classes are offered for toddlers through adults in all arts disciplines. Programs will take place both on site as well as some online.
Through a partnership with Verb Ballets, Fairmount’s School of Dance provides a progressive, curriculum-based program for students ages 5 through 18 years. Fairmount School of Dance offers courses in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, and contemporary. Through the Fairmount School of Dance, students may also participate in Fairmount Dance Company and Fairmount Dance Company Jr. which are educational, community based performance ensembles. Ballet students in the School of Dance will perform a holiday show — “Nutcracker Tea & Treats” on Saturday, December 4.
Recreational Dance offer classes for children (starting at 3 years), teens, and adults in Kinderdance, Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Tap and Spanish Dance. Back this fall is Hip Hop Crew, a community performance ensemble who will be taking their talents into the community, including a performance at a Cleveland Cavaliers game this fall!
Through Fairmount’s theatre programs, actors develop skills in creative dramatics, script reading, singing, and choreography and gain self-esteem and confidence in a caring, energetic atmosphere. This fall, the Youth Theatre Program (designed for ages 7–14 years) will present “Honk Jr.,” which shares the story of the ugly duckling through a charming story that is shared by young actresses through dance and song. Honk Jr. will be performed in November by the cast enrolled in the fall program.
