Absolute Beginner Ballet and Tap Classes for Adults

Time to Dance with CBG Institute for Dance & Health, a division of the nonprofit CBG Institute for Dance and Health, will offer a five-week workshop beginning April 14 to teach students 50 and older the foundations of ballet and tap at the North Shore School of Dance, in Highland Park. Designed for individuals with no previous dance training or that desire to get back to dance, but feel they need a refresher course, classes will cover basic steps, technique and terminology, with the goal of helping students develop new skills that’ll enable them to enjoy the pleasure and health benefits that come from experiencing creative movement through dance.

Ballet classes will be taught by co-founder Lynne Belsky, M.D., a former professional dancer with the Joffrey Ballet. Lorraine Chase, with 25 years of experience with the North Shore School of Dance, will lead the tap series.

Cost: $75. Location: 505 Laurel Ave., Highland Park. For more information and to register, call 847-510-3357 or visit
