Storytime Dance

April 23 - June 4
Tuesdays 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. We'll integrate our exploration of different storybook themes and characters with fundamental dance styles including jazz, ballet, hip hop, tap and creative movement. Students will practice vital skills in reading comprehension, memorization and performance while engaging in the joy of dance.

This class concludes with a Family Observation Day on the final week of class. 

Hip Hop

April 25 - June 6
Thursdays 3:15 - 4:15
Grades: 2nd-5th

Perfect for students at all skill levels, dancers will learn basic hip hop choreography and culture 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 as well as structured technical practice. All hip hop students should wear clean gym shoes and comfortable clothes that they can move in.

This class concludes with a Family Observation Day on the final week of class.
