Dance Classes & Leadership Training for Ages 3-18
Moving in the Spirit provides a safe, nurturing environment in which young people can study the art of dance, make friends and develop leadership skills.
Our curriculum focuses primarily on modern dance and incorporates ballet technique, creative movement and the creation of original choreography. We accept students ages 3-18, beginner to advanced. Need-based financial aid is available. Classes for the 2017-2018 program year begin on Monday, September 11.
Moving in the Spirit’s unique mission is to help young people develop the social, emotional and cognitive skills they need to thrive, using the art of dance. We realize this mission by integrating youth development best practices in our class structure, which is designed to transition children successfully into adulthood. Students are given a voice in class activities and choreography, set personal goals, problem-solve with their peers and practice leadership skills. Over time, students flourish and expand their leadership in the organization. On average, they remain with Moving in the Spirit for 7 years.
Girls should wear black footless tights or leggings and a black leotard. Boys should wear a black sports shirt and black pants or shorts.
