creating dances (ages 6–8) with jody cassell

Saturdays, 11:00am–12:00pm
In this class, young creative dancers learn about improvising and choreographing dances. They will play with movements and dance concepts as well as plan or arrange their movements. They will create patterns of movement that they informally perform for and then teach their classmates. The students’ creations can be just simple and fun, or we can experiment by rewinding, varying speed, or dancing on different levels. This is a class in happiness, taking creative initiative, and following others’ dance designs.


dancing with your little one (ages 0–3) with jody cassell

Saturdays, 10:00am–10:45am
Dancing with your child can be fun, bonding and educational. Dip, swirl, bounce, jump, twist, twirl, and soar into exploring ways of moving that you can also do at home. This creative movement class includes skill-building movements, music, and rhythms which add to the fun and learning.  A time for adults to enjoy! Jody Cassell comes up with all the ideas for you and your little one to follow! All caregivers are welcome. We need a minimum of 6 children registered in order for each session to move forward. Please register in advance, and tell a friend!

*If the session moves forward and space permits, families can drop-in on individual weeks for $20.
