Animal Dances: Creative Movement Classes

February 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

These classes bring physical education, imagination and technical skill together in a class designed for kids who love to MOVE. Wild, strong, beautiful, ferocious, delicate, swift, we’ll move as noisy packs, solitary creatures and dynamic murmurations. We’ll look to animals’ bodies to understand how our own muscles and bones work, and use sound and color toward movement invention. Classes pull from the biomechanics underlying contemporary modern dance forms, ballet technique, aikido, yoga, Franklin method and Pilates. These intertwine with sensory exploration and guided improvisational play to empower and amplify children’s physical voices and natural inner animals. All levels of movers welcome. Dancing will be barefoot, no special clothing required.
