**Creative Movement Dance

Instructed by Miss Kailey
Designed for our youngest dancers, the creative dance class aims to begin to develop coordination, self expression and group interaction. Creative Movement explores dance through a variety of methods using music, props and instruments. The emphasis is not to imitate the teacher, but to encourage the child to dance freely. This class is a great way for a toddler begin to learn to follow directions and wait for his or her turn, as well as to gain social skills, confidence and independence. Dancers will perform at the Year End Concert.

*Dancers must be 2 yrs before September 1, 2017
