Here at Grant we love to dance! Come explore different dance styles and develop technique and skills with Mrs. Englebright this summer! Students will build on concepts and skills they have learned at Grant. This is being offered due to a request for summer dance programing here at Grant, and is not being advertised elsewhere. However, if there is a friend, neighbor or even a cousin visiting from another state, they are welcome to register.

 

Forms went home in students' folders Please fill out and return with a check. You will receive email confirmation of your registration. Checks made payable to Krissa Englebright. There are limited spots available and it is first come first serve. If your registration is received after the camp is full, your registration form and check will be returned to you. Students entering 3rd grade in the fall may talk to Mrs. Englebright about whether they should register for the beginning camp or intermediate camp. No special attire required – just comfortable clothes for movement. Students may wear dance attire and shoes if they prefer. Please have students pack a water bottle and a snack. Questions?

Hello Grant Families!

I am so excited to be starting the school year with you! Students will be spending two of their three trimesters with me (and the third doing Visual Art with Mrs. Newton). Though my primary emphasis will be dance, I will also be integrating many theatre concepts into my classroom lessons, as well as supporting the musicals and other performances in the school.

Once your student figures out his/her day for dance/theatre, you can help support by reminding your student to wear clothes appropriate for moving, including sweatpants, leggings or stretchpants and other comfortable clothes. Please do not have your student wear dresses or tights on dance days.

I am in the building on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and you can reach me at kengleb@tacoma.k12.wa.us. Look for information on a Wednesday morning ballet class for primary students coming this fall! Grant Dance Company will be starting shortly, as well!

 I am so excited to begin the school year with you!
