In Arts Encounter, dancers will meet for 2 classes daily (dance and art), for 4 consecutive days, to explore, through dance, art, music, and foods from around the world - a different theme each week.

These 4 day sessions are each focused around different ballets.

Monday through Thursday,

Your young dancers will explore a different story ballet each week culminating in a Thursday family performance. 

The children will use improvisation, basic movement concepts, folk dance, and classical ballet to recreate the story ballets. Your children will design and construct costumes, props, and scenery to enhance their production.

At snack time, we’ll explore a different culture and era while we sample foods from around the world.
