Join ArtSparks for a series of engaging outdoor dance classes for children and families that will be popping-up in Akron and Cuyahoga Falls in June, July, and August. Get up and get moving—and explore your community with the ArtSparks team!

Each 45 min class is taught by a lead dance teacher/choreographer, assistant dance teacher, and a musician. Participants will receive a map on their first class and collect a sticker/badge for each class/location they attend.

What to know before attending a Pop-Up Class with ArtSparks:

  • Come dressed to dance! (Tennis shoes are the safest footwear and dressing like you would for a school gym class is perfect!)
  • A parent or responsible adult is required to stay for the duration of the pop-up class. Homeschool or community groups must have at least one adult present for the duration of the class.
  • You will receive your map on your first class! Please bring your map to each class you attend to collect your stickers and prizes!
  • By attending class you consent to release ArtSparks and participating partners of liability against the possibility of accident or illness involving my student.  I hereby waive and release, on behalf of my child and myself, any claim that might be made against Art Sparks and/or participating community, its directors, officers, employees and agents in connection with any injury or illness my child may incur.
