Once Upon a Dance

This is an enchanting and creative pre-ballet based movement class designed to allow young dancers an opportunity to learn to dance, act and explore their own creativity in a magical world of make believe and storytelling.  Each class the dancers will be transformed into a fairytale character with the use of creative props and costumes and will then explore movements that will make the fairytales come to life.  A little in-studio performance will be held at end of each 4 weeks.  Instructor: Melinda Buzan.  Chico Creek Dance Centre, 1144 West 1st St.
