Creative Dance with Hayley Shannon
School's out and it's time to MOVE. The ideas in our minds become shared choreography as we explore the elements of dance, strengthen our bodies, improvise, and develop dance skills through stories and dance-specific exercises.
Skills will become more challenging as the class progresses. Students will create in groups and as individuals.
