The power of music; it soothes the soul, quiets the mind, and sings a story.
It's the dancer job to feel the emotion in the music to bridge the gap from stage to the audience. This term students will learn choreography that expresses a dancer's dream as fears are faced with grace and dignity. Our class showcase music will help tell a story of beauty and love come to life, as well as teach how the power of God’s love and caring is part of that story. Although this tale may have an expected ending, that does not make it less powerful. Come be a part of this joyful tale as we explore the world of story-telling through dance, and the art of emotional delivery.
