Service Description

At Firefly Dance, we begin class with silly songs and stretches, igniting students' imagination and getting them involved in the process. We move on to basic ballet positions and technique, and end class with creative expression. At this level, students are working at the barre (or in this case - tree!) to develop fine-tuned footwork and balance. Using a blend of movement games, simple choreographed dances, and dance props, dancers are engaged throughout the class. We end each session with an informal performance complete with costumes they choose! We will have many safety restrictions in place including: temperature checks, health screenings, mandatory sanitizer, masks, and distancing in your own dance "apartments".  Class will be held in a beautiful grassy knoll in a NE Park (TBD by the folks at Portland Parks) so bring your water bottle, sunscreen, umbrella, and sparkling self. It's time to boogie!
