Modern Movement (Ages 5-11)

Modern movement is considered to be a dance style that stems out of classical ballet. A perfect course for those that have taken pre-ballet in the past. The movement and dance is more freed up for the performer and is a great way for young creators to express themselves in a more non-traditional, yet fluid way. This course will culminate in a showcase for parents.
