Dance + Art = Creative Mix with children

Creative movement is the main component of this multi-arts program. Participants explore visual arts, creative writing, and acting in a dance environment.

This program emphasizes supportive learning. We focus on play, cooperation and nurturing individual creative expression.

The program can take a variety of forms: a series of classes, a one-time workshop, a day camp or a celebration. During warmer months, many activities can be facilitated outdoors (weather-permitting). The theme and focus are tailored to the ages of the group.

In a multi-session format, each class explores a different dance concept such as shapes, speed, and levels, as well as movement skills, games and crafts.
