Event description
This outdoor distanced dance movement class is an opportunity for creativity, dance skill building, and communing with people and nature.

About this Event

This movement class is both creative and technical for ages 5-8. Students will be exposed to movement from many styles including hip-hop, ballet, folk, and contemporary modern dance to develop skills in coordination, balance, strength, flexibility, rhythm, and expressive qualities. Students will also engage in games and dance activities that provide opportunities for them to be creative. We’ll have lots of fun while being ourselves, dancing our imaginations, appreciating each other, and working together.

This class is a unique opportunity for children to get exercise, bond with their peers, learn skills, and be creative all with incredibly minimal risk of covid-19 transmission. We will be meeting outside as weather allows. If the weather is rainy or otherwise inclement, we will change to meet online (likely Zoom) if necessary. When we are outside, we will follow this protocol:

-We will maintain at least 6 feet distance from each other.

-Everyone will be required to wear a mask.

-If for some reason, a dancer needs to remove their mask (likely to drink water or change masks), then that person will need to distance themselves at least 12 feet away from others.

-If a student or adult care-taker has any covid-19 like symptoms (cough, fever, loss of smell, etc.), they will be asked to stay away from class. If the teacher develops symptoms, then class will be held online.

I will provide some support to the students to understand and maintain this protocol. In this age range, the spatial awareness for appropriate distancing may be challenged, thus each child or pair of children should have and adult with them on the first day to assist with distancing and other safety protocol. If the first day goes well, then parents can change to drop-off on the following days.

The class is capped at 8 student participants to ensure quality experience and safety.

This 45-minute class happens Mondays 3:30-4:15pm from March 1- May 24, 2021 for this Spring Session running for 12 weeks. There will be no class on March 29 for a Spring Break (matches Philadelphia Public School schedule). we meet in West Philly's Clark Park. More detail about location will be shared closer to the first class via email and potentially text. The full 12-week session is $165.

If you are interested in trying this class before committing, please email me.

This class is open to all gender expressions. There is no set costume or dress code. Students are asked to wear clothes and shoes they are comfortable dancing in outside. Flexible pants that cover knees and shirts that cover shoulders are ideal. Depending on the weather/temperature, bringing a warmer outer layer will likely be ideal for this Spring session, particularly at the beginning of the season. Sneakers with some cushioning and that fasten securely to the foot are ideal. Parents/caretakers are expected to support their children in making good decisions about their clothing and footwear.
