    Watch you child’s imagination grow! Activities include rhythmic warm-ups, movement preparation for technique work in ballet, jazz and modern dance, exploration of dance concepts, imaginative stories, songs, folk dances and choreography. Students express themselves through guided movement choices, empowering them to become dance makers.
     
    Contemporary Dance and Ballet: Ages: 8 to 12 Years
    This class will be based in the Martha Graham Technique (Modern Dance) that utilizes floor work, posture, upper body movement, and ballet that is rooted in the Russian Vaganova Technique.
