DANCE! (Grades K-4)
TUESDAYS | 2:40-3:40pm
Location: Small Gymnasium, next to main gym
Instructor: Kateryna Stoliarenko, Star Dance School
Class description: Dance! The children will be introduced to ballroom and latin dances such as merengue, salsa, cha cha, swing, and tango. During the lessons children will work on posture, balance, coordination, and musicality. They will enjoy learning how to pair organized and rhythmic movement with their favorite music. As all ballroom and latin dances are partner dances, children will be exposed to dancing in pairs. Through their partnerships, children will be expected to show respect for self and others while learning to work effectively as a team. They will hone their communication skills, and become aware of how nonverbal cues are used to communicate changes within a partnership. By learning standardized movements and choreographed routines, children will gain the discipline and independence necessary to become accomplished dancers.
Class size limited to 12 students.
