Modern Dance Workshops for Very Young Children
Geared to children ages 3 - 6 years, this program involves a fun-loving warm-up that the children join in immediately. Designed specifically for participation, the children are shown short pieces that depict rudimentary concepts (i.e. linear vs. circular) and are then guided in developing their own phrases of movement, which explore these concepts.
