Students in this class expand on the dance skills and activities introduced in the fall and winter sessions. The curriculum includes essential repetition of movement vocabulary to build strength, improve coordination, and increase confidence. Activities foster attunement to rhythm, tempo, emotion, and expression in music and movement, along with the ability to focus, carry out directions, be leaders and followers, and collaborate with classmates. New material is carefully introduced to extend their capacity for movement, attention, self-reflection, and social engagement.
* This class is scheduled to meet in the Edward St. John Student Center Dance Studio provided that public health conditions permit. McDonogh School and Peabody Preparatory reserve the right to change this class to a hybrid or virtual format to ensure the safety of the students, their families, and the faculty and staff.
