Exhale after school! Wiggle your elbows, stretch your legs, and spin with your nose. Roll on the floor in a new way, swing your body through the space, leap high in the air. Explore movement concepts while building dance skills and developing creativity. Creative dance is an art form that everyone can enjoy!
Parents/care-givers are invited on the last day of class.
Class is suitable for children aged 5-8.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Creative dance is an expressive and vigorous art form! Class structure and exercises are developmentally focused and aimed at helping your child learn to move her/his body through space with freedom and joy. We dance with props, use varying music, read stories, and even create art projects from time to time. We stretch and strengthen our bodies, use our bodies to the fullest, and also allow time for relaxation. Children learn from watching each other. We build into class time for performance and reflection.
Dragonfly Children’s Creative Dance classes are held in the New Expressive Works studios. New Expressive Works is located at 810 SE Belmont, Portland OR 97214. (Entrance is the South side door of the WYSE Building.)
