For Kids: Get in the Groove
Mondays 3:30- 5pm
Oct 20th- Dec 15th

In this sensation-based dance class, kids will learn how to find dance in their bodies- moving from the inside out, so that regardless of genre, they will have the fundamental sense of healthy technique, connection to their own body’s unique way of moving and to dance itself. Through mindful movement, this class will help to improve grace, coordination, balance, flexibility, strength, musicality, and confident self-expression. Get Into the Groove will take students on a fun journey into a deeper connection with self, movement, music, expression, and the joy of dancing!

*The principles of Get Into the Groove will help support other formal dance instruction as well, but no previous dance experience or instruction is required.
$135 for 9 week class
