FIND YOUR GROOVE
Time for a dance party! And what’s more fun than dancing to some groovy tunes with your friends??
Rather than teaching specific dance moves, we encourage participants to find their own moves, that feel good in each person’s body. With a focus on increasing body awareness through movement and tactile engagement, this program will teach much more than just dance. Through play, movement exploration, and creativity, we will explore valuable skills such as emotional regulation, healthy social connections, and self-understanding. The body plays a key role in our overall wellness, and by teaching children to listen to their bodies and find healthy ways of coping with the world, we will teach skills that transfer into every day life. Each day we will close with a simple mindfulness practice, cultivating the ability to be present with ourselves and our emotions.
Children should be prepared to move, dance, and play. No previous dance experience necessary. Come as you are!

When families need a little financial boost to get kids involved in a sport, dance team or other active program, they need to fill out an application. This needs to be done before the fees are due, as the money goes right to the organization.
