WINTER 2015 

We hope to instill in each student the joy of dance as an art form. Children are allowed a high degree of personal freedom for their own invention and creativity.

Contemporary modern dance stresses movements that are strong in their effort and weight yet lyrical in their speed and beauty.These classes develop technical and creative dance potential, including floor exercise, alignment and motor skills.

ABC DANCE (Beginner Dance)
For the budding, at-home dance enthusiasts that love to twirl, skip, jump and fly. We will enhance dancing with music, stories and movement. Learn fundamental dance positions and posture, and be introduced to different dance styles and choreography.
