Creative Movement with Mary Jane
Mary Jane's unique approach to teaching creative movement will excite your child to develop skills and self expression through dance. The class will explore various concepts in a fun and nurturing environment. Props and music will also be used to explore thematic lessons combined with popular children's literature. The children will develop rhythm, creative interpretation, and listening skills. Mary Jane is a highly sought after teacher. For over 35 years she has taught dance to children of all ages, with a concentration of work in preschool, daycare, cooperatives, Montessori, and Elementary schools. She has taught workshops to preschool teachers, and has a special love for the preschool child. She is still an active dancer herself, and a former Artistic Director of Happendance Modern Dance Company.
