Wellspring offers classes for adults and children year-round!



Wellspring offers an alternative approach for children's and adult modern dance classes through its unique philosophy of teaching and learning from the "inside out" versus traditional methods of learning rote movements, copied from the outside. Students learn creativity, build strength, increase flexibility, improve coordination and learn the basics of body alignment and movement. In a relaxed and nurturing environment, Wellspring classes allow learners to feel safe and accepted as opposed to a competitive/team approach.

No previous dance experience is needed. Classes require no special attire, just comfortable clothing and bare feet. Classes are ongoing and students are welcome to join at any time during a semester.

Refer a Friend
As a way of saying, "Thank you," we'd like to offer a Wellspring T-shirt to current Wellspring students that refer a friend. Here's how it works: 1. You must be a currently registered semester student or be a drop-in student that has attended a minimum of 8 classes. 2. Your friend must register and pay for a full semester of classes. 3. Your friend must identify you as the person that referred them (only one name may be listed).
