Creative Movement, Dance Classes for Kids at UW-RF
Parents looking for a way to channel their child's energy can now register for creative movement and dance classes offered by the UW-River Falls Outreach and Graduate Studies Office.
"Creative Movement" classes are offered for children aged 3-4 and 5-6 and "Intro to Dance" classes are offered for children ages 5-7. All classes begin Oct. 18 and include four Saturday morning sessions.
"The Creative Movement Class is child-centered and uses colorful props, imagery and music to encourage children to express themselves through movement and physical play," said instructor Susan Sell. "The Intro to Dance class is designed for the child who is interested in building a foundation in dance vocabulary and refine and enhance specific movement skills, personal expression and creativity."
All classes will have appeal for children interested in physical activities including dance or sports, she added. No special skills or abilities are required.
One four-week session of the 45-minute classes is offered for each age group at a cost of $30 per student. All classes will be held on the UW-River Falls campus in the Karges Center Dance Studio. Class size is limited so parents should contact the Outreach Graduate Studies soon to register.
For more information and to register, call the Outreach and Graduate Studies office at 715/425-3256 or 800/228-5607.
