Classes are back in session at the Southampton Cultural Center.
A&G Dance Company

Dance and Art at the Cultural Center

The A&G Dance Company has returned to the Southampton Cultural Center for another year of dance and art education.

Classes in hip-hop, tap, ballet, and contemporary dance are available for children and teens as young as 2 — and, starting Sept. 29, for adults, too. Classes are taught by dancers who also have degrees or certifications in early childhood education, and feature original choreography and music. The dance company holds three performance showcases each year and also has programs in wellness and adaptive dance for youth with disabilities. Ten-week semesters cost $125 for one class, $235 for two classes, $320 for three, and $380 for four.

An Intro to Street Art class for kids 8 to 12 will be taught by Adam Baranello on Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. from Oct. 4 through Nov. 8. Mr. Baranello, whose work has been featured in magazines, films, onstage, and even on wine bottles, will cover print making, drawing, and T-shirt design. Each student should come prepared with a blank T-shirt, a folder, and a favorite drawing tool, such as a marker, pen, or pencil.

Full details, including dress codes for the dance classes, can be found at
