Ages 7-12, Tuesdays 5:00-6:00pm, taught by Sofia Engelman

This Modern dance class will emphasize freedom of movement and expression alongside technique. Drawing from traditional and contemporary forms, dancers will expand their kinesthetic awareness through practice of across the floor and center combinations, improvisation, floor work, and performance skills. We suspend, release, and find the floor.

Classes begin September 8th and run through December 17th, with no class the week of November 25th. Youth classes are a 14-week session for Fall 2019.

Youth Classes: $190 per session
