A Hyattsville dance studio for children under 12 resumes indoor teaching in September after adjusting to coronavirus restrictions for the past 17 months.
When the pandemic started last year, Adagio dance studio switched to online classes and then began to gather in Driskell Park with masks and yoga mats during the winter, although the humidity and swarming of cicadas caused a break during the summer .
“Each week, families contacted us to register their children for our outdoor dance lessons,” owner Christina Green told Hyattsville Wire. “Ironically, our studio has grown enormously during the pandemic! “
The dance studio, which started in 2010 and moved to Hyattsville in 2019, will begin its regular fall classes on September 7, meeting in just rock at 4000 Rhode Island Ave. in Brentwood and Joe’s Movement Emporium at 3309 Bunker Hill Road. 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 gets colder, Green said she hopes to return to outdoor classes as well.
Green started dancing in church at the age of 2, studying at Joyce LaVerne Dance School, 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.
