HMS - Dance

Dance Class Description:

Dance is an art form that is used all over the world. Every culture has some form of dance and many cultures have several. In this class we will be learning several forms of dance; as well as the technique, vocabulary, and history that go with that form.

 

A major focus in dance is the kinesthetic awareness and expression that can be learned through movement. As well as learning the movements, students enrolled in a dance class will take away with them self-confidence, self-discipline, and poise.
