On September 17 from 1:00-3:00pm former Disney dancer, Sam Sinns, will be hosting an open house at his new dance studio, Twirl. Twirl is located at 3544 West Chester Pike in the Newtown Square Shopping Center (the entrance is behind the Sprint Store on Clover Lane).
The open house will be a chance for kids and parents to meet Sam and some of his team of teaching artists. Visitors will also be able to tour the dance studio, enjoy snacks and drinks, and take free sample dance classes as well. Dance classes for ages 8 and up include hip hop from 1:10-1:30pm taught by Tiffany Holmes, a company member of Philadelphia’s Just Sole: Street Dance Theater; Twirl’s owner, Sam Sinns, will bring his 20 years of professional dance experience to students in a jazz class from 1:40-2:00pm; and Dana Powers-Klooster, who has an MFA in Dance from the University of Iowa, will give a sample ballet class from 2:10-2:30pm.
Sam will wrap things up by teaching a fun jazz-based dance class for students age 5-7 from 2:40-3:00pm.
Sam says that he is excited for area families to see the new dance studio. “I’ve brought a lot of my own personal history into the space. There are a lot of cool things that I’ve collected from
Disney on display on the lobby walls. There are pictures, Disney awards that I’ve won, and things that are exclusive to Disney cast members that you can’t buy in stores. It’s like a little Disney museum,” explains Sam. He also notes that another point of interest is the hardwood floor in one of the dance rooms which is believed to be old flooring from the Conestoga High School gym. “I like that my space has history. I like stories and it’s cool to me that even the floor has its own story to tell.”
Families who attend the open house can also save up to $50 by receiving free registration when they register for classes at the event.
Twirl is a dance studio that offers dance instruction to students age 3 and older. Classes begin on September 19 and include ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, modern, musical theatre, acrobatics, preschool dance and dance for Down syndrome students.
