Dancing StoryTellers

Kids in Dancing Storytellers create their own whimsical characters and stories through improvisational dance, song and the spoken word--all to be shared at a final performance for friends and family, full of giggles, wiggles, storytelling and movement!


Class Overview


Spring is a great time to get outside and get moving! Kids in Dance and Storytelling will get a chance to enjoy snack and recess outside at the beginning of each class (weather permitting). After enjoying unstructured outside play, the group will work with actress and choreographer, Christina Beck, to develop stories and characters, inspired by great works of classical music.  Children will learn how to use dance to tell a story through movement.  They will also express their story ideas through the spoken word.  This is a class designed to spark your child's imagination, confidence, and self expression!
