Performing Arts center offers dance lessons

The Interdisciplinary Performing Arts Center (IPAC) is currently enrolling students in its inaugural young dancers program, which is currently hosted by the Epiphany School near Dorchester’s Shawmut T stop. The center will soon be housed in a brand new performing arts space in Fields Corner, which is currently under construction and is expected to be finished sometime in early 2019.

The program currently offers four Saturday classes: a Creative Movement class for ages 4-6 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.; a Ballet Basics class for ages 7-8 from 10 a.m to 11 a.m.; a Ballet Level 1 class for ages 9 and up from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.; and Hip Hop Level 1 class for ages 9 and up from 12p.m. to 1 p.m.

“IPAC’s professional faculty members are accomplished educators in their fields,” reads a statement from a flyer advertising the program. “Each one expertly guides their students in an open-minded and supportive manner that adheres to IPAC’s core values of acceptance and compassion for all. We believe that the arts elevates one’s self-esteem and and overall sociological perspective on community, culture, and humanity.”
