Creative Movement with Miss Valerie at The Makery
Creative Movement with Miss Valerie is for children ages 3-6 who are interested in a joyful and fun dance experience.
Miss Valerie's specialized dance program, which combines her 20-plus year of experience as a preschool teacher with her dance training to create a program that emphasizes creativity, group interaction and the joy of self-expression. She focuses on developing spatial awareness, energy control, musicality and locomotor skills (including walk, run, leap, gallop, hop and skip).
Props are a fun part of her classes, including scarves, balls, rhythm instruments and even paintbrushes (with imaginary paint of course!).
Drawing is included in the Creative Modern classes as part of an integrative approach to arts education, and poetry and children’s literature are occasionally used. Age appropriate music, including classical, children’s and world music provide the soundtrack to the classes.
Classes are limited to 10 dancers, and masks will be required at all times.
