Duck River Dance will be hosting a registration open house from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 at the studio located at 123 E. Main St. 

DRD is a full scale dance studio located across from the Manchester Arts Center.  In addition to traditional classes such as ballet, tap, and jazz, DRD offers classes in contemporary, musical theater and hip hop styles. 

This year, a couple’s ballroom class has been added to the schedule as well.  DRD offers classes for students ages 2 1/2  to adult. 

“A proper studio setting offers so much more than just professional instructors and proper equipment, such as a sprung floor which is safer for dancers’ bodies. When students learn in a studio setting they learn technique, terminology, the history of the art form and we can offer exciting opportunities like master classes and dance conventions” says artistic director Danielle Afflerbaugh. 

Open house is an opportunity to meet the staff, tour the studio and check out the schedule.  Classes begin Monday, Aug. 6.
