Do you have a child that loves to move? Each semester, the UM Dance Program offers children’s dance classes for kids 3 ½-10 years old. The creative movement-based classes take place on UM’s main campus in the PARTV building. Creative Movement provides opportunities for children to express their inherent creativity through their bodies. Based on the premise that children love to move, creative movement capitalizes on children’s natural movement forms: jumping, twisting, spinning, leaping. Children are also exposed to the elements of dance and basic movement patterns. UM Children’s Dance program serves as an excellent introduction to dance for all children. For the 7-10 year olds, dancers are introduced to dance technique and create their own original choreography. All classes are accompanied by live piano and drums! It’s an invaluable opportunity for young movers to get the opportunity to interact with live music in the dance studio.
