Preparatory Arts Program offers new dance classes, including flashmob

August 23, 2013

Loyola University New Orleans Preparatory Arts Program is expanding this fall to offer three new types of dance classes, including a Michael Jackson-themed flashmob class taught by Loyola ballet alumnus Kenneth “Kynt” Bryan ’99.

The flashmob workshop will take place every Sunday, Sept. 8 to Oct. 27, and will explore choreography from Jackson's legendary “Thriller” and “Beat It” videos. The final performance will take place at a surprise location in New Orleans on Halloween. Bryan will also teach an all-ages hip-hop workshop on Sundays, Sept. 1 to Oct. 20. Registration for the flashmob course is $90, and the hip-hop workshop costs $80. For more information or to register, contact Bryan at 504-453-6991.

Loyola ballet instructor Leigh Brockman will teach a yearlong contemporary dance class, which will borrow elements from classical ballet, modern and jazz dance styles. Classes begin Monday, Sept. 9, and registration is $115 per semester or $10 per class for Loyola community members and $12 per class for the public. For more information on the contemporary classes, contact Brockman at 504-460-6807.
