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. Students in this class are working consistently at the barre (or in this case chair/tree) for balance support in perfecting challenging moves. They learn more complicated choreography, creating a portion of it collaboratively. Concepts of movement quality, tempo, shape, and space are introduced with an emphasis on expression and kindness. Using a blend of movement games, 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!
Inclement weather cancellations will follow Portland Public Schools. For expected absences, a make-up class can be scheduled if the other class has space available. This must be scheduled at least a week in advance.
