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. 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, the 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 to assist with distancing and other safety protocol.

The class is capped at 8 student participants to ensure quality experience and safety. Further, It is yet to be determined if this class is drop-off or chaperoned and that decision will be made per child and in collaboration with the family. On the first day, an adult guardian is expected to stay with their young dancer to help them participate and follow safety protocol if needed. Then, after class, we will determine together what is best for the safety, education, and joy for your child and the entire class. If you were hoping for drop-off and I don't feel that your child is ready for that, you will get a refund.

This 45-minute class happens Mondays 3:30-4:15pm from September 14- October 26, 2020 for this Fall Session running for 6 weeks. There will be no class on Monday, September 28 as it is Yom Kippur. 

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. Fantastic costuming is permitted as long as it doesn't impede movement or safety. Depending on the weather/temperature, bringing a warmer outer layer could be good. 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.

This class is geared towards ages 6-8 or students in 1st and 2nd grade, but Loren can consider students in kindergarten if they have some familiarity with class/group structures and movement class and can't make the Monday 2-2:45 class for ages 3-5 Mondays or the Friday 3:30-4:30 class for all ages. Loren will also consider students in 3rd grade if they are not available for the Wednesday 5:15-6:15 class for ages 8-12 or the Friday 3:30-4:30 class for all ages.
