What to Bring Bring a snack and Ballet shoes.
Take a graceful leap into the world of dance and creative play. Dancers will begin the day with a creative movement class. We will explore how the body moves through pathways, direction and space. Gaining locomotor and fine motor skills will be a major focus, as well as learning movement sequences. Through creative exploration with props such as wands, hats, chairs, and feathers, dancers will stimulate their imagination. Dancers will learn to make movement choices, and to work with music. Interactive storytelling will complete each session.
No previous dance experience required.
Look for additional Creative Dance opportunities offered from August 4-6, 2014.
Open showing of the dancers’ interactive stories for families and friends held on Friday, July 11, 2014 at Kerry Hall.
