Creative Dance: Rhythm & Flow

Woodshop teacher and elementary student working together

Wednesdays (8 Weeks) 

      January 24 – March 20 (No class Feb 21)

Instructor: RiseUP Stars

Get ready to move and groove! In this interactive movement and dance class, students will  experience different styles of movement and dance (ie. hip hop, creative movement, rhythm-based movement, yoga and more). Students learn to do more than just follow. They’ll learn how to express themselves through movement. 
Dance uplifts, unites, and empowers children. It also provides children with an opportunity to express their individuality while working on gross motor skills and developing cognitive and social skills. The teacher will guide participants through a choreographed routine and provide them with the tools to individualize the movements. No dance experience required. This class is gamified and designed to support physical movement, individual self-expression and self-empowerment.

Those in the older (later) session can choose to stay in the regular after care program for the hour before class begins (regular EC rates apply), or head home and come back by 3:15. If there’s few enough registrations we will combine the two classes and only do 2:15 – 3:15.

Cost: $215

Minimum 5 students, maximum 15
