details

CDFC classes are for children ages 4–10 who are yearning to move with joy and dance their hearts out! Classes focus on exploring dance concepts, developing dance skills, and creating movement through improvisation and dance making activities.  Directed by Betty Allen, a nationally known and long-time dance educator in our local schools and community, these classes utilize DAI Dance majors as teaching assistants!

 

Our program follows the Brain-Compatible Dance Education (BCDE) methodology developed by Anne Green Gilbert. Classes focus on exploring dance concepts, developing dance skills, and creating movement through improvisation and dance making activities.
