The Movement Space is a high energy, active and unique experience for kids to burn off some steam, have a laugh and engage with their peers.
The movement classes bring in dance and movement through a selection of pop songs that are choreographed to highlight the lyrics and musical elements of each song. The Teaching Artist engages with the kids through conversation about the songs, the lyrics and the message of the song. The playlist pulls from well known pop songs about empowerment, strength, over coming challenges and being yourself. Kids can also request songs during class.
The Movement Space does not focus on dance technique, but rather on moving the body to music in a meaningful and intentional way to feel the power of the lyrics and music through the body.
5-Week Sessions, Drop-In classes and Class Packs available. See below for more info.
I feel so lucky to be able to interact with these kids, who have quickly become my friends, in an environment where they’re not being graded, judged or told to behave. The intuition they show while dancing and expressing their emotions is so impressive.
