Parents and Dancers,
I am very excited to introduce myself as Village Dance Academy's new Artistic Director. I cannot wait to meet all of you! I would love to see you at our open house on Thursday, August 31 from 4-7 PM. This will be a great opportunity to meet some new faculty members, chat about our class schedule, and explore registration options.
A bit about me - I have twenty years' experience training in all styles of dance, with nearly a decade's worth of teaching experience in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I earned my BA in dance and media/communications from Muhlenberg College, where I also honed my craft as a choreographer. My work primarily focuses on modern and jazz styles, and I have extensive training in teaching children under the age of five. For our first season together, I'm looking forward to injecting vibrant new choreography, music, and educational approaches to the existing culture at Village Dance Academy.
Cheers to a wonderful season of dance! , Alexa Astarita
