of life really takes place.” - Barbara De Angelis

At the Dance Workshop, we believe in quality training, regardless of the dancer's age or ultimate goal. To
this end, our faculty is comprised of teachers who possess a wealth of professional experience in teaching,
performance and choreography. We also believe in a "multi-lingual " approach to training, and to this end,
you will find classes in Ballet, Pointe, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, Dance Team, Earth Rhythms, HIp Hop,
Irish Step, Belly Dance, and more.
We believe in dance as an integral part of life, and invite you to share this with us.
Looking ahead to 2014 - 2015 and celebrating our 30th year of Dance!
The Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop is located at 2720 Del Rio Place, in Davis California.

studios, and an In-House Theater with tiered seating, In addition, there is plenty of parking and a beautiful

No worries, if you've missed the first couple weeks of a session. Students can begin at any time, providing
there is room in the class.

multiple dance forms, as well as our
KORE program... Academic enrichment
through the arts with a special focus on
integrating dance, visual arts, and the
rhythms of writing songs and poetry! In
this picture you can see students working
with tempos, which evolved into the
rhythms of iambic pentameter!

Ballet/Contemporary Intensive, in 2015,
