The participating children learn movement sequences through simple exercises, thereby expanding their dance vocabulary. Musicality, coordination, flexibility, spatial awareness and concentration are taught in a playful way. Improvisation opens up a path to their own creativity and dance expression. The workshops give the children the chance to get to know their bodies and their abilities better, thereby building up self-confidence and self-esteem.
The workshop is aimed at children aged 10 – 13
Sunday from 14:30 to 16:00
Participation in our dance workshops is free of charge.
