Creative Movement

Space is limited and classes do fill up, a wait list will be created once class is full. A second class may be added to accommodate registration numbers.

Creative Movement (CM)

 Dancers born in 2019

Schedule:  Tuesdays 5:00 - 5:30 pm

Start Date:  February 7, 2023

Instructor: N. Sweeney

Dancers will explore the basics in dance through games, music, and creative exploration. Technical basics and foundations will be introduced with focus on musicality and spacial awareness. The Creative Movement class does not perform in the Nutcracker but will take pa​rt in YDA’s annual Spring Recital.

**Parent/Guardian is encouraged to quietly sit in the studio or wait in the dressing room/lobby for the duration of the class. It may be required for the first few classes that parent/guardian may need to sit beside their dancers or actively participate to help their dancer. The goal for the term would be for young dancers to participate in class without parent/guardian in the studio, but waiting in the lobby/dressing room.
