Dance Foundations 11

Credits: 4

Looking to have some fun? Want to try dance in a safe and welcoming environment? Come join our Dance Foundations class!!

This course is designed for students without any or very limited dance experience, or for those students who want to dance without performing. The purpose of this class is to foster the joy of dance while teaching basics.  Students develop their coordination, strength and flexibility through warm-up and short cross floor exercises that help them to develop dance vocabulary and technique.  Students learn short pieces of choreography in a variety of genres, including hip-hop, jazz and contemporary, and perform them in class, but do not perform for large groups or in front of the school.

Upon completion of Dance Foundations, students can be recommended to Dance Technique and Performance or they may continue in Dance Foundations.

Requirements:  None. Dance Foundations is a course open to all students with or without dance experience.

Meet your Teacher:

Hi! My name is Mrs. Morson and I teach dance and yoga at Mount Doug. I started dancing at the age of 4 and choreographing at the age of 7, and have continued studying dance and choreographing ever since. I have trained in ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre, contemporary, modern and lyrical, and am currently studying tap and am part of a competitive jazz class at a local dance studio. In dance, there is always more to learn and opportunity for growth. As a dance teacher for more than 20 years, I am honoured to share my passion for dance with students. I hope you will join the Mount Doug Dance Program and share in the fun.
