Young Dancers 7 Week Session I - Portland- Fall 2019

Location Name Class Days
Small Studio
Danceimagination Sampler
Dance Imagination introduces dance basics and inspires young dancers to express themselves through movement, developing their understanding of the art and technique of dance in an atmosphere of fun and purpose. Using concepts which are familiar to the child, movement is introduced which invites them to apply imagination, energy, and coordination. Through creative play and imitation, children strengthen basic motor skills and self-esteem by learning what they can do. By exploring dance, music, and language, the child’s many facilities of self-expression are nurtured. Memorization improves because the elements of dance are identified and used in many interesting ways. Focus on form, technique and composition increases with age and ability within the curriculum. Training young dancers in this in-depth method develops body awareness, agility, rhythm, improvisation skills and creative thinking of a permanent nature while preparing for the more regimented study of ballet, jazz, modern and other related theater arts. More on our Young Dancers Program. This class is a mini session version of our Dance Imagination Program does not perform in the Spring Concert.
