Studio North Academy of the Performing Arts, LLC, 414 Linden Ave., Wilmette
Studio North Academy of the Performing Arts, LLC opens it’s 7th season on September 11, 2017, featuring lessons and performance opportunities for all ages in Dance and Music. SNAP is launching its new Teen Program this Fall, which offers classes geared toward older students that have some dance background, but wish to continue dancing in a recreational setting (without class requirements).
Owner Pamela Sue Fox explains, “We have, from the very beginning, attracted older beginning dancers (ages 11-14) who are looking for an artistic home. So we thought it best to put a program in place to continue dancing through their high school years with various levels of commitment. With our thriving Early Childhood Department, Recreational Track, Academy Track, Pre-Professional Track, Adult Classes and now our Teen Program, there really is something for everyone!”
Classes run Sept. 11-Dec. 22. Register online at www.studionorthacademy.com
