Each semester, the UM Dance Program offers children’s dance classes for the community. Children ages 3½-6 are invited to explore classes in creative movement. Our training program provides opportunities for children to express their inherent creativity through their bodies. Children are also exposed to the various elements of movement, learning how their bodies move within different spatial, time, and qualitative structures. UM’s creative movement classes serve as an excellent introduction to dance for all children.
Classes in dance technique and choreography are offered for children ages 7-10. In these classes, young dancers are presented with the more formal structure of a dance technique class. The teacher leads the dancers through exercises that build an understanding of body alignment, strength, and flexibility. The creativity of the dancer remains of ultimate importance in this class as dancers are introduced to the art of making dances and provided opportunities to collectively make new, unique, and fresh choreography.
Children's Dance classes will next be offered beginning in September 2013.
