Thursday 1:00pm – Liturgical Worship Dance (8 and up)
What is Liturgical Dance?? Liturgical dance is spiritual dance that incorporates music and movement as a form of worship. Like singers use their voice to worship God, Praise dancers use the motions of their bodies to express the word and lift their hearts to God. Each class will begin with a devotion and time of prayer. Students are encouraged to share prayer requests, and we will keep those in mind as we praise God through movement. Following our devotion, we will have a time of warm up. Students will learn dance technique that will help with grace and coordination. You do NOT need to be an experienced dancer!
Thursday 2:00pm – Art, Music, & Dance History around the World (8 and up)
Fun for ALL ages! Students will travel through time to learn the history of music, dance, and theater. We will visit many cultures and learn about the roll that music and dance played in everyday live. Each week we will visit a new time and place in history and learn the dances of that time. Classes will include a fun history lesson followed by dancing! Students will learn about the politics, theater, music, and dance that shaped various people throughout history. We will travel from Ancient times, through the Post- Classical years of Modern History, and end in America with an overview of how dance and music has evolved over the last century. Learning about dance, music, & theater history has never been this FUN!
Thursday 3:00pm – Musical Theater Dance (10 and up)
Want to be a triple threat? Add “theater dance” to your bag of skills. Each class will begin with a short, fun history lessons about the playwrights, choreographers, and actors that have made an impact on theater. Students will learn different types of dance styles and movements commonly used in stage productions. They will develop skills that help them move around a stage and other performers with coordination and ease. We will practice combinations that require partnering and formations that require teamwork with other performers.
