Dance Fall Evenings with Renee – 2019
Dancers dream with their feet…
Without the pressure of a polished finished product for a recital or a show, both the instructor and the dancers have the freedom to invest class time exploring more difficult steps, steps that all members of the group may not yet be able to do. (In a show, we only choreograph the turns and jumps that everyone can do together; in class, each dancer can be pushed to the limits of his or her abilities and can be given the space to work on weak spots.)
One result of this shift in focus is that there is not a lot of opportunity for parents to experience a “finished product” of classwork. We will work to give you a glimpse of progress, but you will notice increased confidence and enthusiasm for dance and improvements in your dancers’ abilities in other shows.
