Dragonfly Children’s Creative Dance

Creative dance is an expressive and vigorous art form! Dragonfly classes are developmentally focused and aimed at helping your child expand her/his creativity and dance with freedom and joy. Classes explore the dancer’s body moving through space, our relationship to time, and how much or little energy it takes to move and groove. We dance with props, use varying music, read stories, and even create art projects from time to time. Dragonfly uses modern dance technique as a foundation to support creative adventures.
