Dance Into Classes This Fall

By Michaela Payne

More than 40 dance courses will be offered this fall semester at the Wellness Center and Valencia Center to students learning dance theory, performance, composition and how to dance more than 12 different styles.

Students new to dance may enroll in the theory courses Black Tradition in American Dance and Dance Conditioning, which have no prerequisites, and beginner-level ballet, modern, improvisation, jazz, African Haitian, tap, hip hop, ballroom, swing, Lindy hop, tango and zumba.

Returning dancers may choose their level in each dance style, like advanced beginning, intermediate, advanced and intensive levels.

Most courses are one unit and will cost $46 for 18 once-a-week sessions, the price of just two to four classes at many dance studios in the Bay Area.

Canceled dance offerings include contact improvisation taught by Christie Funsch, whose other classes, workshops and performances as Funsch Dance Experience will be listed on and on Facebook.

The full course offerings are listed in the physical education and dance section of the fall catalog, at, and through the City College PE department online or at 415-239-3411.
