CLASS DESCRIPTION: Creative Movement and Dance, Confidence and Team Building taught by Kimberley Kreps. Kimberley helps bring stories to life through dance, creative movement, costume, and narrative! Students will be introduced to the basic elements of storytelling, tapping into dance traditions such as Native American Fan dancing to aid in their understanding of symbolism in dance. Students play dance and theater-based games, and explore moving like animals, robots, and objects found in nature. There will be “dress up” and character-building, leading up to an original final performance for registered students.
