Dance! w/Ms Charlene

CASTLE AT THE END OF THE COURT DANCE PROGRAM at Wild@Art is directed and taught by Ms. Charlene Brickhouse.  She has been teaching dance and movement to Preschool, Elementary and Special Needs children all of her adult life. Her expertise includes: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hula, Modern, Belly-dancing, Swing, Salsa and Drama… also Art, Design… and always a flair for color!  Animated and habitually colorful, you’ll know her by her theatrical outfits and purple-colored car (complete with eyelashes on headlights). And how our children love her! 

Charlene’s program offers a range of classes for PreSchool ages 2-5y and Elementary ages 6-12y, designed as a comprehensive school-year-long series of weekly classes in the Studio’s spacious Movement Room.  The class schedule generally follows the WCPSS traditional school calendar year:  beginning late August through the end of May, with a program recital the first or second week of June (at a local theatre venue). 
Please note: As with ALL studio classes, Ms. Charlene follows Wake County Guidelines as far as inclement weather closings.  If Wake County Schools are CLOSED, there are NO dance classes.  This is also the case with early dismissal due to weather.  We want to ensure the safety of all our dancers and their families!
