In class children experience a variety of music and dance styles that may include Guinean and other African dance, Hip Hop, Hawaiian Hula, Bhangra & Bollywood, Balinese, Brazilian, Armenian & Greek Folk, Cuban and more.
Elements of Creative Dance and Movement are combined with cultural dances in each class. Through developing and strengthening movement skills children build a foundation for their own expression of dance.
Stories, books, photos, videos, songs, instruments and dress-up related to the cultural dances being studied are often a part of the children's cultural experience.
World Dance broadens children's awareness of their global community.
In a World Dance class where there is a performance at the end of the session, the class focuses on one or two types of dance to perform in an informal setting. The children may also create their own group choreography as a performance piece.
