A Hyattsville dance studio for children under 12 resumes indoor instruction in September after adjusting to coronavirus restrictions over the past 17 months.
When the pandemic started last year, Adagio Dance Studio switched to online classes, then began meeting in Driskell Park with masks and yoga mats through the winter, although the humidity and swarming cicadas meant a break through the summer.
“Each week we had families contacting us to enroll their children in our outdoor dance classes,” owner Christina Green told the Hyattsville Wire. “Ironically, our studio has grown tremendously during the pandemic!”
The dance studio, which started in 2010 and moved to Hyattsville in 2019, will begin regular fall classes Sept. 7, meeting at just rock at 4000 Rhode Island Ave. in Brentwood and Joe’s Movement Emporium at 3309 Bunker Hill Rd. at Mount Rainier.
Studio space will be limited to dancers and instructors, all of whom will be masked, and parents will be able to observe the class via Zoom. When the weather cools, Green said she also hopes to resume outdoor classes.
Green started dancing in church at the age of 2, studying at the Joyce LaVerne School of Dance, BalletNova and Montgomery College. Over the years she has trained hundreds of dancers who now work professionally as dancers, choreographers, studio owners and company directors.
