Everyone is a dancer and can benefit through play and exploration in movement. In addition to heart health and improved gross motor skills, dance serves as a way to teach social-emotional skills, sequencing, math concepts, and storytelling. Performing can also enhance children’s confidence and self-esteem, which in turn fosters leadership skills. Join us to learn the three elements of dance, the eight basic locomotor movements, and how to structure and plan a dance activity or lesson in your afterschool program.
