The Infinite Legacy Project [ILP] is pleased to announce its ILPCC: Community Classes for All starting Sunday, October 5 at 1pm at its school (housed at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1250 West Exchange Street in Akron – at the corner of Mull Ave & W Exch St). All classes are $5 – always! This provides a way for the community to enjoy movement classes at a very affordable price – and supports the scholarship program of The ILP. (All amounts above the $5 class charge donated to The ILP are tax-deductible.) Pointillism Jazz Consort [PJC] member, Veronica Shreffler-Moss, will start off the program with fun, high-energy Zumba classes each Sunday at 1pm. Then the program will gradually expand to include dance and exercise classes for kids, adults, and seniors, as the ILPCC sees what the community wants to try. Unlike traditional dance studios, the ILPCC outreach program encourages people to come in and try things out – without the commitment of paying for an entire session of classes.
Shreffler-Moss will be coordinating the ILPCC at Westminster, helping to realize the second phase of this outreach mission of Pointillism Jazz Consort dance company. The first phase of The ILP began in 2011 with “Mini Company” scholarships awarded in ballet classes during the Akron After School Program. The ILP scholarship program has grown each session – with hundreds of students experiencing professional dance ‘up close and personal’. Westminster Church generously hosts The ILP so that this cultural education can take place – without socio-economic barriers. Suzanne Winland, Director of Pointe West Performances (the non profit for PJC and The ILP) says: “We’re thrilled to get community members trying out dance and getting in shape! The ILPCC involves everyone in the arts on a personal level and provides much needed funding for the scholarship dance training program of The ILP.” Winland adds: “The more the community comes into this beautiful space – at Westminster Church – the more likely it is that they will attend performances and support local arts.”
The $5 payment is via ‘Square’ swipe (all major credit cards and debit cards welcome); no cash please. Questions about classes? Contact Megan Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org !
