For Fall 2021, SANCA is expanding with new classes and some returning favorites that haven’t been around since before the pandemic. Come explore and grow with us!
Who needs two wheels when you can ride around on one? Unicycle coaches will tailor their instruction to the skill level of each student, ensuring maximum individual progress. This class will help beginners gain the body control and muscle memory they need to ride a unicycle. This class will add to the intermediate/advanced student’s preexisting skills, refine their technique, and provide instruction for more intricate tricks. With Coach Julaine. Click to register.
Circus is a movement-based art form where, often, music is used to enhance performances and telling stories. To help with the development of an individual’s story and style, we offer a dance class. This class will be based on African diasporic dance forms. As we progress, you will be encouraged to incorporate your own musical taste and individuality with your movement. Ultimately, we hope this class will help with finding how you express yourself with movement and music and how you can use that in group or solo work. With Coach Tania. Click to register.
Jazz Dance is a performance dance style with roots in African-American styles that arose with Jazz music. It has since been adopted in Western culture to incorporate elements of Ballet and Musical Theatre. In this class, we will investigate the fundamentals of Jazz movement and build sequences based on this classic dance style. This beginner level class is great for beginners to learn new moves and for advanced practitioners to work on technique and precision. This class is designed to be a fun and active way for all dance enthusiasts to get moving! With Coach Laura. Click to register.

Students will focus on building their sense of balance, coordination, physical awareness, and spatial orientation in conjunction with developing mental acuity and problem-solving skills. SANCA’s general circus classes start with a warm-up and then move on to working on age-appropriate circus skills in a few disciplines per week, including trampoline, tumbling, static trapeze, aerial rope, tightwire, aerial fabric, rolling globe, juggling, and more. Students will develop physical skills, increase confidence, and build self-esteem while having fun.
