This course is designed to expose students to a variety of dance styles to improve their strength, balance, flexibility, rhythm and creative thinking skills. We’ll develop a knowledge of different influences, histories and moods with movement. By familiarizing ourselves with a rotating list of choreographic influences and styles we’ll challenge our imaginations to go beyond dancing to the music and into accentuating the songs. Our goal is to play, make believe, embrace the demanding aspects of movement and learn how we can contribute as creatives. Students will participate in warm ups, barre work and learn dance combos from a variety of styles including hip hop, ballet, jazz, musical theater and more.This course will conclude with a dance showcase to celebrate our progress. Prior dance experience is not required for this class.
