Arts Skills Programs
One of the fundamental functions of dance is to create community through movement. As a dance educator, I strive to create communities of dancers that push the boundaries of creativity, in and outside of the dance studio. This type of creative community can only exist through providing a learning space where each dancer is encouraged to be a critical thinker, risk taker and constant challenger of the norm. The dance studio should always be a place where students are encouraged to create work they believe in and that shows the audience their passion for dance and theatre.
This program is adaptable for Virtual Learning.
