Come dance for the pure joy of it! Everyone has something to share with the world, and in Creative Dance children learn to express themselves through the language of dance. Classes begin with guided warm-ups, followed by introduction to and exploration of different elements of dance each week. In Creative Dance, there is no right or wrong way of dancing, no patterns to memorize. Emphasis is on the joy of moving to music and rhythm; this is not a formal technique class. The goals for the class are that the children move their bodies with joy, discover new ways to express themselves through movement, and experience the beauty and power of dance.
“My kids (ages 5 and 7) have taken Jenny's classes for two years and have enjoyed every moment. They have learned to use their bodies in new ways - to express feelings and ideas through movement. It's not about memorizing steps and working only toward a single costumed performance; it's about understanding rhythm, music-body connection and the joy that comes from letting your body feel the music. I can see it in their faces when they put on shows for me at home, too.”
"Jenny's class was the perfect setting for my toddler to become a bit less inhibited and learn to move her body in fun, freeing ways. Jenny's inclusive, friendly style and use of imaginative storytelling, rousing music, props, and instruments engage and inspire even the shyest of new dancers." -Warner, NH
