Laguna Dance Festival will offer a master dance class taught by New York City Ballet principal dancer and California native Tiler Peck on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Laguna Beach High School Dance Studio, 625 Park Ave.

Peck will lead a ballet technique class followed by a question and answer session. Cost is $25 per dancer; observers $15. Space is limited; reservations are required.

This class is recommended for intermediate and advanced dance students age 12 and older who have at least two years of pointe experience.

Pike was recruited by her friend, Laguna Dance Festival founder and artistic director Jodie Gates, now a vice dean and director of the USC’s Glorya Kaufman School of Dance.

Gates, a former ballerina with the Joffrey Ballet, will also teach a master class on Saturday, Nov. 21.

Details about this class can be found on the Festival website as they become available.
