Storytime Dance

April 16th - June 11th (No Class 5/28)
Mondays 3:15-4:15
Grades: PreK-1st


Story time Dance brings your favorite narratives and characters to life! This class emphasizes creativity, choreography and character building as we forge the link between physicality and narrative. Students will engage with the season of Spring through stories that teach us about changing seasons, the life-cycle of plants and animals, and seasonal traditions such as Spring cleaning! We'll integrate our exploration of Spring with fundamental dance styles including jazz, ballet, hip hop, tap and creative movement. Students will develop vital skills in reading comprehension, memorization and performance.This class concludes with a parent observation on the final week of class. 

Hip Hop

April 26th - June 14th
Thursdays 3:15 - 4:15
Grades: 2nd-5th

Students learn basic hip hop choreography to upbeat music in a fun, encouraging environment!  Dancers will improve upon dance technique, as well as explore the history of hip hop and learn about rhythm and music. The students will be  encouraged to create their own dance moves by participating in improvisational games. All hip hop students should wear clean gym shoes and comfortable clothes that they can move in. This class concludes with a parent observation on the final week of class.
