Class Description:

In this physically rigorous while still incredibly silly and fun class kids will:

  • Learn body-based mindfulness techniques
  • Move without stopping until their hearts are pounding.
  • learn to dance with a partner and group including taking and giving weight
  • Create and learn dance combinations, developing muscle memory and musicality
  • Use movement as a way to express concepts and emotions.
  • Learn how to create dances with beginnings, middles and ends.
  • Learn how give reflective feedback to other dancers
  • And, of course dance all out, however they want, because it just feels so good!

The class is broken into two sections with a short snack/social break in the middle.  The class will produce several pieces to be performed in various settings throughout the session.
