Class cards offer flexibility for adults

You’re a busy adult with work, kids and family obligations, a mile-long list of things to do, and a host of commitments pulling you in different directions.

Fortunately, with the class cards at the Patel Conservatory in Tampa, you don’t have to sacrifice personal time just for you!

Escape from reality and explore your creativity at a time that suits your schedule with our Class Card and Reel Deal Card.

Class cards are available for adults and college students for dance classes and the new  class, Who Knew? Rather than register for one class, try them all by purchasing a class card, which allows you to attend any dance or Who Knew? class.

More than 80 people took advantage of our class cards over the summer, said Melissa Fortman, registrar at the Patel Conservatory.

“A lot of people who travel for their jobs or have family commitments enjoy the freedom of the Class Cards because they have the ability to drop in when it’s convenient for them,” said Fortman.

She points out that it’s also a great option for those who simply want variety.

“A lot of our adult dance students took dance when they were young. As they get back into it, they want to try different styles of classes, like ballet, hip hop and jazz,” she said.

Class Cards are $65 for a 5-class card, or $120 for a 10-class card.

They may be used for the following:
  • Who Knew? This new class is a great way to learn about concerts, Broadway musicals or other events at the Straz Center. Discuss the music, study the script or chat with professionals involved in the performance for a behind-the-scenes look at how shows and concerts are produced. Who Knew? classes are available on a drop-in basis only. Topics to be announced throughout the year.
  • Community Dance Classes Get your body moving and alleviate stress with one of our community dance classes.  Choose from ballet, contemporary, hip hop, tap, jazz and flamenco.

New this fall! We are now offering a Reel Deal card for our On-Camera Acting class.

The on-camera acting class helps students improve audition techniques and develop honesty on camera through exercises in improvisation, Meisner Technique and character development. Gain confidence and strengthen your acting skills, and prepare for professional auditions and bookings.

The class is offered Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 3 to 5 p.m.

The Reel Deal card is available for the Saturday classes only, and allows students to drop in when it’s convenient for them.

The Real Deal Card is $65 for a 5-class card and $120 for a 10-class card.
