Creative dance fosters self-expression through development of movement skills; interpersonal skills and knowledge of body self.  Children develop a vocabulary of movement through exploration of body actions, dynamic variation, spatial awareness and active modulation of impulses.  Here is what the class flow looks like:

  • warm up
  • Exploration of themes and materials: themes; space, pathway, energy, tempo, shape etc.  Materials; scarves, streamers, stretchy bands, body sox etc.
  • Technique skills: leap, sashay, skip, moving to a beat, turning etc.
  • Creating and showing: putting together movements that have been explored and showing them.  To develop artistic skills in problem solving, seeing movement and speaking about movement.
  • closing
