Dance at Chaffee Trail
Led by Taylor Baines
This course has reached capacity, but a waitlist is available.
Students must be enrolled at Chaffee Trail Elementary School to register for this course. 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.
