COLEMAN-BUSH BUILDING


classes ELITE

Elite Dancers are at the highest level class offered and has a strong focus on more complex steps and choreography. It focuses on the tools, technique, and strength needed to execute this advanced form of dance. These advanced dancers are focused on dance conditioning, advanced technique, musicality, style and execution of choreography. This level will take that technique and challenge the dancers to find their own style as well as adjust to other teaching styles of Jazz, Ballet and Tap

— BALLET & TAP Ballet is a classic art form teaches poise, strength, grace & control, proper body placement & alignment as well as discipline. This genre is the essential foundation for all other types of dance and is foremost in learning proper technique. TAP class is a form of dance wherein rhythmic sounds are created by the feet. This class teaches all the very basic through advanced skills in tap with emphasis on rhythm, and tempo, and ability to count music, with numbers and even sounds. ­—

BALLET 2 Ballet Level 2 is a class for any dancer with a beginning understanding of ballet technique. The class covers the fundamentals of ballet technique using simple combination patterns to allow students to focus on perfecting their technique and learn new steps. This class builds of skills taught in level 1.

— Low Impact Fitness Come out and enjoy exercising at a low pace and feel comfortable being here All ages including Seniors. Mon 5:30-6:30pm Instructor: Lolita Berrien

JAZZ

Jazz dance steps are the first part of exploring jazz dance, an energetic and exciting display of physical prowess. Jazz dance itself is a combination of classical ballet moves mixed with steps from American popular culture, including African and Celtic dance influences. While it has become a fine art form, originally jazz dance was designed to entertain, and even the basic steps have a showy, extreme feel to them.

— SUPER TOTS Super Tots is designed for toddlers age 3 and 4 and is perfect for those entering a dance class for the first time who are eager to explore the world of dance! The dancers will have a rich experience of learning how their bodies respond to music - learning skills such as locomotor (moving) and non-locomotor (staying in one place) movements in an atmosphere that is filled with imagery and self-expression. Dancers learn basic ballet and jazz skills that help strengthen their motor coordination & body awareness. Social skills are also acquired as they develop simple class tasks such as taking turns and following directions while interacting with their peers.

ColemanBush Building History Coleman-Bush Building was designed to be a multipurpose physical facility for the social, economic, health, cultural, recreational, and educational needs of the growing community. Construction began on the thennamed Northwest Community Center in 1974. In October of 1980, it officially became the Coleman-Bush Building. It was named after two gentlemen who were prominent members of the community. Charles A. Coleman was a Lakeland Commissioner from 1974 until 1978. He also served as mayor pro term in 1976 and mayor in 1977. Gow M. Bush was a well known physician. They were both active and involved in the local civic affairs. This building has proven to be an important asset to the community and has continued to fulfill the objective set up all those years ago. It has provided office space for lease by non-profit organizations and meeting space for civic groups. Social events enhance the quality of the community life, so it is only fitting that the Coleman-Bush Building, a community cornerstone, hosts these events, as well. It also provides leisure time programming for the city’s residents. City of Lakeland Neighborhood Services & Housing Division replaced the rental suites, NAACP remains in the building.
