Creative Movement

Creative Movement is a way for children to explore physical expression through music while improving coordination, channeling energy, stimulating imagination, and promoting creativity. Creative Movement uses body actions to communicate images, ideas, and feelings. Children will develop skills in pathways (zigzag, circular), levels (low, middle, high), and relationships between space (close, near, far). Creative Movement is a joyful way to begin the journey of kinesthetic intelligence.

Broadway Dance

Broadway Dance teaches story-telling through staging and movement. While Broadway Dance borrows from an array of dance genres, it differs from traditional dance in that it is character/plot-driven. Broadway Dance takes the intent of the written text (sung or spoken) and uses dance as a means to heighten emotion, progress the story, and show and resolve conflict. The perfect class for the aspiring musical theatre performer, come be a part of our ensemble in Broadway Dance.
