Registration onging for city arts, dance

Registration for the Bayou Beaux Arts and Dance Program is going on now in the Office of Community Development on the second floor of Franklin City Hall.

“Classes are filling up quickly this year,” said Arlana Shields, Office of Development Director. “If you’d like to participate, you should register soon. The last day to register for the dance portion of the program is April 5, but if you’re interested you shouldn’t wait. The dance class is nearly half full.” A class will be considered closed when the open list and the waiting list are filled. Those on the waiting list will be contacted if there is a change in a class’ enrollment.

“There is a waiting list, but there is no guarantee that students on that list will be able to be a part of the program,” Shields said. “Also, a parent or guardian must complete the registration form for students under the age of 18.”

Jazz, tap and Broadway dance classes for beginner, beginner/intermediate, intermediate and advanced students ages 6-18 will be held at the Broussard-Harris Recreation Center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Additionally, there will be a class on Monday nights for adults who are at least 18-years-old and out of high school, which will also take place at the Broussard-Harris Recreation Center. LaDaisha Bowles is the dance instructor for the dance portion of the program.

Visual arts classes will be held for students who are at least 13-years-old. A maximum of seven students will be allowed in each visual arts class. Drawing classes will be taught by Jon Eenigenburg June 8, 15 and 22 at City Hall from 9 a.m. to noon. Acrylics classes will be taught by Laura Zuniga June 19, 20 and 21 at City Hall from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Catherine Siracusa will teach encaustics June 29, July 6 and 13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Franklin Recreation Center.
