DANCE AT WALNUT
Grades TK-3rd: All students in grades TK-3rd participate in weekly dance classes with Mrs. Carrie Wilcox. Classes integrate Visual & Performing Arts Standards in Dance with content areas that students are studying in their classrooms. Students also learn the basics of movement in multiple dance genres, including ballet, jazz, modern, creative movement, and a variety of styles representing world cultures. Dance helps students become aware of their bodies in space and learn to be mindful of others in the same space. The dance studio is also a place to build social-emotional skills and find joy through movement.
Grades 4 & 5: Our 4th and 5th grade students participate in weekly dance classes for one semester with the nonprofit organization, Dancing with Our Future Stars. These active classes promote dance skills as well as physical fitness with a focus on Hip Hop movements.
