Sundays 10.30 - 11.30 am (NEW!! 1 Hour Class!)
Six Week Program from November 6 - December 19 NO CLASS THANKSGIVING WEEKEND NOVEMBER 27
Drop off available / Ages 3 - 6
This inspiring and unique class incorporates creativity and imagination through movement, dance and visual arts - building confidence, independence and creative expression.
Each class features a unique goddess from around the world. Through dance and art we learn about her symbols, characteristics and background. This special class is divided into two sections:
The first 30 minutes of the class is focussed on movement and we dance and move in a variety of styles with handmade props and costumes relevant to the theme.
The last half hour of class your children will create a beautiful piece of art or craft activity using natural materials from Mother Earth. Like all great art - we focus on the feel of the process rather than the look of the outcome. (See full description of classes on the right)
