Children's Modern Dance Classes

  • Children's Modern Dance Classes: Each dance class starts with a thorough warm-up to build strength and stimulate core connections and body awareness.
  • The warm up is followed by phrase work focusing on directional shiftf, weight changes, rhythm, and Laban Fundamentals (i.e. time, space, effort, etc.). Class finishes with some fun choreography to keep their minds and body in tip-top shape.
  • Your child will become more self-confident in their ability to create and more comfortable expressing ideas, a key leadership skill.
  • They'll experience an overall sense of fluidity, strength, and confidence in their everyday movement.
