Our dance program is holistic, engaging a students' mind, body and spirit. At Berkwood Hedge School, the Creative Dance Program is a performance art curriculum that integrates body and mind and nurtures the physical imagination. Students will experience body awareness, finding their voice, trusting of self and of others and a consciousness surrounding emotional and physical connectedness.
Our intention is to provide students with a safe environment in which they will be an active participant taking part in the joy of moving. The students will be introduced to the basic elements of dance which are body, space, time, and force. Explorations of these elements will lead the students to develop their artistic expression and create choreography. We will also use movement to investigate and deepen the students' understanding of their classroom's academic curriculum. Every student is kinesthetically inspired and supported.
