This class is for the student that is interested in dance, but does not want to take a traditional ballet class. Using visual art, music, stories, poetry and inprovisation, students will learn how to create movement studies, and choreograph group and individual work.
This class is designed to facilitate students in the art of exploring dance as a language; a way to express themselves, create healthy interpersonal connections, develop creativity, and dance vocabulary. All while having fun in a nurturing non judgmental environment!

Upon submission, please pay $150 via one of the methods below.
