What is modern dance?
Historically, modern dance developed as a concert dance form in the early 1900s and became a recognizable form by the 1950s, with such differences from ballet as inverted verticality, freer use of the body, and a strong relationship with the ground.
What will the kids do?

Children will move fully and creatively to world music while developing skills in balance, strength, flexibility, and musicality. Related activities will include re-inforcement of technique in non-movement exercises.

Children will express themselves and develop creative capacity while building individual agency and teamwork problem-solving skills!
