Alats is a Hebrew word meaning: to jump for joy.   ALATS Dance aims to cultivate the dancer within, and encourage students in expressing a message of hope and redemption through movement.  ALATS began in 2010 and has enjoyed mentoring students for the past 9 years.  Students are trained for 8 weeks to present a show that delivers a message and shows great comprehension of the various dance styles. ALATS Dance 224-419-5186
