The Connection is set to host a series of free, 'Rockette-style' Dance Master Classes -- taught by former Rockette Holly Evans -- on Sunday, February 25, beginning at 11 a.m.

Evans, who spent 10 years as a member of the Rockettes and served as a Dance Captain and Assistant Choreographer for the Rockettes during her tenure. She currently is an Adjunct Professor in the Commercial Dance Department at Pace University. The area resident also teaches guest classes at many private dance schools and Universities across the country.

The series will include:

Teen Jazz Class -- 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Class will emphasize technique and placement through warm up and across the floor exercises while teaching Rockette type combinations and kick lines. Students will learn about precision dance, movement dynamics, performance qualities and how to pick up choreography quickly.

Question and Answer Session  -- 12:30 - 1 p.m.

Adult Beginner Jazz Class -- 1:15 - 2:15 p.m.

2:30-3:30 – Adult Advanced Tap -- 2:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Rockette-style tap dancing is very unique and precise. Participants will learn a tap routine and kick line which emphasize the line of the whole body as well as clean tap sounds.

The workshop series -- free and open to the public -- is made possible by funds from the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Some prior dance experience is recommended.

For those who love to dance and want to keep moving to the music beyond the workshop, The Connection offers a full range of adult dance classes, free to Total Facility Members of The Connection. Members can free their minds and get in shape with the following weekly dance classes: Ballet, Ballet Body Sculpt, Jazz, Tap, Ballroom Dance, Belly Dancing, Cardio Dance Fusion, Lyrical, and Zumba.
