Beginning Dance at Crown Point
Led by Jackie Peterson
Students must be enrolled at Crown Point Elementary School to register for this course. In this beginner level program, students will develop muscle memory and learn rhythm, coordination, musicality and choreography through age-appropriate movement and music. This modern dance program seeks to nurture students as movers, thinkers, creators and performers as they investigate and experiment with movement, learn the fundamentals of dance technique, build and choreograph dances, and present and perform their learning for others at the annual Performing Arts Showcase.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
