Youth & Family Dance Classes
“Teaching Kids and Teens Life-skills through Dance”Note that there are two different Youth programs at our location. The DanceWell Youth Program is on Sundays only. Ask for Linda Springstead and the DanceWell staff, or look for (DW) classes.
TWO SUNDAY CLASSES FOR YOUTH
1. Elementary Dance Class 6-15 year olds
Practicing face-to-face contact with others beyond their own friends, this course combines dance lessons with common courtesies, helping students create a positive impression on others. An edge that will help your child in life.
- Confidence and self-esteem
- Respect and acceptance of individual differences
- Social skills and teamwork
- Coordination and musicality
The dance steps help break the ice and create a teamwork effort with various partners, while learning coordination and having fun! The cumulative effect of dancing and socializing over the months and years is of students who not only have fun and learn a great movement skill; they shed their shyness and emerge with self-confidence.
2. Family Class Ages 5-75
This is an INTRO class for families, currently Sundays from noon to 1pm – just $5 per person
Everyone working together, changing partners and learning social skills as well as fun dance steps.
