And we are really excited to welcome our first afternoon childrens’ class:
Mondays with Jenna Lutton/Gildenfire Dance
3:45 pm – Preschool Dance
4:30 pm – K-3 Dance Class

Gildenfire Dance:

Gildenfire Dance has been teaching children a love of dance for 10 years.

Classes consist of a Brain Dance warm-up, games and stories highlighting the week’s movement concept, practice of dance skills and an ending stretch for cool down and flexibility. Each week we work on an area of focus such as space level, size, balance, directions and spatial relationships. We build on earlier concepts and use familiar games in new ways to explore the movement concepts with a combination of teacher directed and child directed activities.

Price: $65 per 6-week session
