CREATIVE MOVEMENT (AGES 4-5) WITH LINDSAY LEONARD

Saturdays, 9:00-9:45am. $105.
Creative Movement provides a basis for a child’s future study of dance. It is important that the class be physically and mentally stimulating, while also being a ton of fun! This class will focus on developing basic coordination skills such as balancing, rolling, skipping, and jumping, as well as some basic dance technique. We will explore the idea of using movement for expression and storytelling, as well as how to relate movement to music. We will stretch and strengthen our bodies through games, dances, and the use of fun props.


DANCING WITH YOUR LITTLE ONE (BIRTH-3 YEARS) WITH JODY CASSELL

Saturdays, 10:00–10:45am. $105*.
Dancing with your child can be fun, bonding, and educational. Dip, swirl, bounce, twist, twirl, and soar into exploring the 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. All caregivers are welcome. *If space permits, families can drop-in for $20.

DANCE ADVENTURES (AGES 5-7) WITH JODY CASSELL

Saturdays, 11:00am–11:45am. $105.
In one place or around the space, with big or little movements that travel high or low, quickly, slowly, forward, backward, or sideways, we will fill the room with our own creative dance stories.  We learn concepts of dance, the foundation of technique, and learn to use dance symbols when creating  solo and group dancing adventures.   


DEVELOPMENTAL MOVEMENT (AGEs 2-3) WITH KATIE MOOREHEAD

Saturdays 9:00-9:30am. $105.
In this fun and nurturing creative movement class, children will explore dance concepts using multi-sensory props and instruments.   Through movement stories, nursery rhymes, and a wide variety of music, children will strengthen and gain greater control of their bodies as well as increase their understanding of how they can move in their own space, through general space and in relation to other dancers. These concepts are particularly important as young children navigate their shared classroom and outdoor spaces with others and discover the strength, abilities and limitations of their growing bodies. Developmental Movement supports healthy brain development as well as positive social and emotional skills. 


HIP HOP I (AGES 7-9) WITH RONALD WEST

Saturdays, 11:00am-12:00pm. $105.
This hip hop class aims to make dancers aware of their bodies by focusing on weight shifting, dancer synchronization and beat recognition within the most current music styles. As the class continues it will give dancers an opportunity to be exposed to increasingly more complex and fluid movement. Get ready for a fast-paced and bumping class!


HIP HOP II (AGES 10-13) WITH RONALD WEST
