In this fun week-long camp, young dance fans explore pre-ballet fundamentals combined with Broadway, jazz, and pop moves for an upbeat class with strong emphasis on rhythm, imagery, and creativity. Dalcroze offers a hands-on, movement-based approach to the elements of music through rhythm games, creative movement, stories, ear training and improvisation. Finally, sing your heart out in a group singing class of favorite melodies!
