We will focus on positive body awareness, natural creativity, teamwork, motor co-ordination, personal expression, discipline and self control. Through the use of adaptive movement, music, props, mats and equipment, the students will come together for a final demonstration on November 22nd at 2:00 p.m. at the Karen Peterson's Excello Dance Space.
