Treehouse Shakers’ dance residencies range from Modern to African Dance and offer the student an enjoyable whole body experience. The class explores elements of creative movement including locomotion, space, shape, and rhythm. Students are also encouraged to explore their own movement through improvisational activities. The workshops incorporate the learning standards from the Blueprint for Dance. Dance is an ideal art form for students to creatively express themselves, fine-tune motor skills, learn sequencing, practice spatial awareness, and develop kinesthetic skills. As they become older, dance is an opportunity for incorporating group choreography, gaining a sense of community, experiencing team building, and finding emotional expression.
“A positive introduction to the world of dance.”
-JoAnn Heimes, 1st Grade Teacher, Rock Springs, WY
