Creative Dance Classes

Creative Dance Classes

Our creative dance classes focus on the development of the whole child. Dancers develop technique through traditional modern and ballet exercises. In addition, they exercise their creativity and imagination as they explore the elements of dance through age appropriate movement. Dancers are given opportunities to improvise, engage in creative problem-solving, and grow in cognitive, social, and emotional ways as they interact in each class. All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians to expose dancers to a variety of musical genres. Kindergarten and older classes will participate in one proscenium performance each year at Kingsbury Hall as part of the annual spring Tanner Dance Studio Show.
