Charlottesville, VA - Piedmont Virginia Community College continues its 2011-12 Dance Master Class season with a jazz dance class taught by Suzanne Miller-Corso, associate professor of dance at James Madison University. The class is from noon until 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, in the Main Stage Theatre of the V. Earl Dickinson Building. Cost of the class is $10 per participant.
