Learn basic, contemporary, and hip hop dance styles in an integrated setting…teens teach kids! An innovative dance program developed in 2009 by the dedicated and talented high school student of the Isabelle School of Dance in Castleton, NY, this STRIDE program is unique, since it is the only program completely run by students. Participants learn jazz and other dance steps through basic movements to music. The program culminates in a short recital performance presented at the Palace Theater in downtown Albany, and at STRIDE’s Brewfest each fall.

The program is open to ten participants per session. Your reservation secures a spot for all weeks in the session. Please see our calendar for program dates.
