Storytime Dance: Spring has Sprung!
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.
Music and Movement with Ms. Mack
Little musicians sing, play, and dance their way through familiar folk and pop songs in this joyful music and dance combo class! We'll explore rhythm and tempo with percussion instruments, dance with scarves and parachutes, go on a melodic adventure through an obstacle course, and hear some sweet musical stories. Students will have opportunities for self-expression, creativity, and teamwork. This class concludes with a parent observation on the final week of class.
Learn hip hop technique in a fun and encouraging environment! Dancers will practice choreography to upbeat music while improving upon rhythm, flexibility, coordination, and improvisation. Students will have opportunities for self-expression and collaborative work. 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.
