Vervet Dance in the classroom/studio

Classes open to the public that Vervet Artistic Director Loren Groenendaal offers:

Dance for Children

This class combines creative movement with story time for a fun learning experience that builds language acquisition, developmental movement, conceptual understanding, personal expression, social skills, and creative problem solving. We will use our bodies with assistance from our expanding imaginations to move through stories to reinforce verbal literacy throught the young child's strong kinesthetic intelligence.
