A look at the past, present and future with you! Our program will feature dance performances as well as opportunities for students to try movements. Also encourage students to be innovative with imagining the future of dance. Students will be guided to explore cultural emotions expressed through a variety of performed dances. For example classical Chinese dance uses movements that reflect simplicity & modesty or Spanish dance reflects confidence, courage and excitment through big jumps and sharp movements. There will be an interactive segament where students will have the chance to try different movements that could reflect different themes and emotions from student suggestions. Discovering the future of dance: Students are the future of tomorrow. Students will have the chance to be choreographers. We will ask for their ideas on how they imagine dance in the future(based on technology and world events). Our dancers will move according to their suggestions creating choreography.
