Inclusive Creative Dance for children provides the opportunity to explore the use of imagination, self- expression and creativity while developing skills through the language of movements. As a part of the multimodal Arts Expression the class includes Art-making inspiration.

During the class, young children experience motor skills and use a variety of music and props which enhance self-awareness, self-control and coordination.

Combining elements from dance and improvisation the class designed with a flexible structure creates a sense of predictability and confidence as well as a safe place.

The goals in class during a creative process provide to the group to expand movements repertoire and body awareness, to increase creative self-expression and communication, to increase interaction and connections, to develop group rhythm and synchronicity, focus on present activity, have fun and be part of an enjoyable group experience.

We welcome enrolments any time during the term.
