Michelle Jensen and Melyssa Hecher recently opened the doors to the United Dance school at the Debbie Seal Centre.

There will be ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, musical theatre and hip hop classes offered throughout the entire year at the United Dance school.

Programming will be showcased with a community registration night held publicly at the studio between 5 and 9 p.m. with free trial classes running for children and adults until 7 p.m. on June 8th.

Melyssa and I grew up in the valley, said Ms. Jensen. We used to dance with Aspire Dance Academy and we both moved away for five to six years. Now were both coming back to start a new studio in Invermere and were offering everything.

Ms. Jensen added that classes will be offered to children and adults from all walks of life.

The youngest age is 2.5 years old and we will be offering adult classes but they wont start until January, said Ms. Jensen. The adult classes will be sessionals. For the kids, were going to offer classes for the full year, recreational and sessional.

Families are invited to drop-in and explore the options being offered at United Dance.

We would love to meet (families) and show them how some of our classes are going to run, said Ms. Jensen.
