A certified trainer will meet with you to review your cardiovascular fitness, body composition/body fat percentage, flexibility, blood pressure and muscle strength/endurance. The trainer will discuss the results with you.

DANCE

Ballet

Ballet is an academic dance form and technique is taught according to specific methods. It is best known for its unique features such as turnout of the legs, and it’s graceful, flowing and precise movements. Ballet is the basis of almost every dance style and its techniques are very important for classes such as lyrical, contemporary & jazz.

Jazz

Jazz is a style of dance incorporating grand body movements such as kicks, jumps, leaps, turns, tricks, etc.) to enhance its choreography. Ballet technique is used to execute movements with proper technique and body placement. Our jazz classes include several different categories including but not limited to jazz/funk, contemporary jazz, commercial jazz, and more.

Hip-Hop

Hip-Hop is a style of dance constantly evolving with the culture of hip-hop music. Classes learn all different styles of hiphop by doing different combinations each week from different genres. Dancers use some breaking moves and tricks to enhance the dances.

Tap

Tap is a style of dance characterized by its unique percussion movements of the feet. The higher the level of tap the more intricate the movements become.

Broadway

Broadway is a musical theatre style dance class using techniques found in Broadway musical productions. Dancers will learn prop work, character building, acting for dancers, along with dance techniques to execute these performances.

Contemporary/Lyrical

Contemporary/Lyrical are expressive and powerful forms of dance that heavily relies on the technique and skills learned in both ballet and jazz to execute its techniques. Students in these classes will form bonds with their classmates through the storytelling of each song played and the emotions they are asked to convey. Classes include improvisation, floor work, combinations, center, across the floor, partner lifts, and more.

Pointe

Pointe is characterized by its light and graceful movements and appearance of weightless movements while dancing on the toes of pointe shoes. Dancers will execute ballet techniques “en pointe”. Dancers must be enrolled in a ballet class and must take pre-pointe and be moved to pointe by instructors.

Special Needs Workout

This class is a fun way to work on strength and conditioning in a group setting. Participants will work on strength, conditioning, agility, flexibility, and more in this upbeat workout class.

Special Needs Dance Class

Dancers will take classes in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, Broadway, lyrical, strength, and flexibility as well as play fun dance games.

Music & Movement

Music & Movement is an introduction to ballet and jazz to set the foundation of upper level dances classes to come. Dancers will learn basic techniques while having fun, listening to music, and experiencing the joys of dance.

VIP & Me Dance

This class is a parent and child dance class that introduces youth to different types of dance. Parents will be required to participate with their child as they walk through ballet, jazz, and other dance techniques. This class will not participate in the recital.

Do you know someone with a disability who would like to go out, have fun and make friends? Since 1976, NISRA has provided recreation programs for people with disabilities, and its mission is: enriching the lives of people with disabilities through meaningful recreation experiences. Socializing, building physical skills, learning, relaxation and fun are some of the benefits gained from participating in NISRA’s year-round activities. Sports, fitness, social, cultural, outdoor and preschool programs, along with camps, special events and trips offer enjoyment for children, teens and adults of all ability levels. NISRA also offers Special Olympics training and competition in 15 sports.

Age Appropriate:

Ages and/or grades are listed with programs as guidelines for age-specific ability. The younger the participant, the more this guideline must be followed to ensure safety, enjoyment, and accomplishment. A birth certificate may be requested if doubt occurs concerning a participant’s age.

Behavior:

Although the Park District realizes that inappropriate behavior may occur, the Park District reserves the right to suspend or remove participants from programs or facilities if hazardous, disruptive, and/or destructive behavior persists. If a participant is taken out of a program or removed from a facility due to these circumstances, a prorated refund will be issued for the remainder of the program or facility usage.

Minimum/Maximum:

A minimum and maximum number of participants is set for each program. This is to ensure the best possible experience for each participant. The Park District may increase or reduce program size if necessary.

Photos and Videos

Photos and video footage are periodically taken of participants in a class, during a special event, or in the District’s parks and facilities. Please be aware that by registering for Park District programs and activities or by using the Park District’s parks and facilities you agree that any photograph or videotape taken by the Park District may be used by the District for promotional purposes including print and electronic media without further permission and without any compensation to you. All photos/ videos are property of the Park District.

In Case of Oops!

During the course of Park District programs, there can be unforeseen circumstances that force the Park District to change schedules, instructors, combine or postpone programs, adjust facility usage or modify fees. The Park District makes every effort to ensure that the information presented in this brochure is complete and accurate; however, sometimes errors do occur and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Insurance:

The Park District does not carry medical or accident insurance for program or facility participants. The cost would make program fees prohibitive. Please review your own personal health insurance plan to be certain that you and your family have the proper coverage.

Policies, Procedures and Guidelines:

Additional Park District policies, procedures and guidelines are available for review at the Cary Park District Community Center.

A Note of Thanks:

Thank you to School Districts 155, 26 and 3 for providing facilities in which to hold recreational programs; to Park District Commissioners, volunteers, and staff who devote so much of their time; and to you, the community, for your support.

Fees:

Resident/Non-resident - The first program fees listed in the brochure are for Cary Park District residents. Non-resident (NR) fees are listed second and are the higher rate of the two. Residents support the Park District through tax dollars, while non-residents pay to participate through higher registration fees. All account balances must be paid in full before registering for new programs.

Fair Share - Those desiring to achieve resident status may pay their “fair share” of taxes based on the taxable value of their home. This entitles an individual to pay in-district fees and register for programs at the same time as residents. Fair share will be applied over a 12-month period. Some exceptions apply, please refer to the Fair Share Guidelines found in the Forms section of carypark.com.

The taxable value of a property is stated clearly on the tax bill. Fair share in not necessarily for everyone. This has to be determined by you, taking into consideration the frequency of Park District use and the value of your home.

The inquiring individual should provide a copy of their current tax bill to the Superintendent of Recreation for review. The Fair Share amount will be calculated and a written reply will be sent. If you don’t have a copy of your current tax bill, call your taxing township for your home’s taxable value.

Waiver of Fees - A Waiver of Fees program is available to provide assistance to residents with financial hardship. Confidential application may be made to the Superintendent of Recreation. Personal financial records may be requested to verify need.

ADA:

The Cary Park District complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination in the provision of programs, services or activities to individuals with disabilities. The Park District invites any resident with a special need to contact us, or the Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association staff, upon registration, to ensure a smooth inclusion.

In addition to the programs listed within our brochure, the Park District also provides specialized services for people with disabilities through the Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association (NISRA). Feel free to call NISRA at 815459-0737, or see the NISRA section of this brochure for more information.

If you have any questions about the Park District’s ADA policy, or believe you have been unfairly discriminated against in the provision of programs, services or activities of the Cary Park District, please contact Dan Jones at 847-639-6100.
