A great way to build confidence, these classes appeal to children’s creativity & imagination to develop sensibility & self-expression, health & fitness skills,  musicality & rhythm, social interaction skills, awareness, coordination and perception. Movement exploration, development & dance making are combined with age appropriate technical skill exercises from modern dance, contemporary dance, hip hop & ballet.

I encourage awareness, making creative choices & teamwork in a non-competitive, respectful atmosphere.  Sharing, observing & describing dance are introduced gradually. Most of all, dance as self-expression is explored in a joyful, cooperative style, valuing each child’s ideas, thoughts, & movements.

These classes are based on work in Movement Analysis by Rudolf. v. Laban, Improvisation by B. Haselbach & Psychomotor Development by E.J. Kiphard.
