DANCE CLASSES FOR CHILDREN AT PC

912Yearoldscopy1.jpgSince 1995, the Department of Theatre, Dance, and Film has offered dance classes for children on Saturday mornings. Classes are taught by PC students who have experience in teaching dance to children. 11-week class sessions are offered twice during the year; the fall session starts in mid September, and the spring session starts in late January. The cost is $35 for the 11-week session, with scholarships available to families with limited income.

68yearoldclasscopy1.jpgClasses are generally small and friendly. Our instructors enjoy children and love to share their enthusiasm for dance with their students. The curriculum is planned to develop dance skills and concepts over a nine-week period. Each nine-week session is unique, so your child can repeat the class and still learn something new. At the end of each session, the children present a short, informal performance in the dance studio. This performance is free and does not require the purchase of costumes.

Creative Dance teaches movement fundamentals while encouraging children to become contributors to the creative process. Classes work on rhythm, grace, strength, flexibility, cooperation, and creativity. Each action-packed class consists of activities which promote body awareness, technical competence, and knowledge of dance concepts. Creative Dance is equally enjoyable for boys and girls, because it values the individual movement styles of each student.

Hip Hop/Jazz teaches the latest dance moves to contemporary pop music. Students learn basic warm-ups, specific steps, and dance combinations at an age-appropriate level. Students also contribute creatively to making dance.
