Barfield School of Dance offers programs for students from infancy to adult, designed to maximize skill development and a love for dance. Our purpose is to cultivate excellence in dancers of all ages, where students learn that dance is an art form. We treasure your child’s innocence with music, lyrics, and movement which are tasteful and appropriate. In addition, Barfield is unique by virtue of the beauty and tranquility of our physical setting. Stroll, sit, swing, chat, and simply relax while your child enjoys class.

Our facility houses three dance studios, with a total of 5,200 square feet of dance floor! All of the wooden floors have an airspace underneath them to protect the dancers’ muscles, bones, and joints.

Performance: Dances of Orpheus and Iphigenia

Barfield School of Dance will be joining the Dances of Orpheus and Iphigenia performance

The Duncan Dance Project, in collaboration with Duncan Dance South, presents Isadora Duncan: Dances of Orpheus and Iphigenia. Direct legacy Duncan dancers Meg Brooker, Valerie Durham, Julia Pond, and Jennifer Sprowl, with Elizabeth Disharoon (courtesy of the Isadora Duncan Dance Company, led by Lori Belilove), perform iconic choreographies from the Gluck Orfeo et Euridice and Iphigenia operas. Dancing in bare feet and silk tunics and inspired by classical Greek art, myth, and nature, Isadora Duncan is considered the “Mother of Modern Dance.” This program celebrates Duncan’s Hellenic idealism by staging her works both outside and inside the Parthenon at Centennial Park. Joining the program will be dancers from Centennial Youth Ballet, Middle Tennessee State University Dance Program, and Barfield School of Dance.

Sunday, April 29, 5 pm, Parthenon, Free
