Little Danceroom is intended to the youngest researchers of movement and dance, aged 3 to 9.
The creative atmosphere of this dance workshop allows the children to explore and become aware of their bodies, their sensory awareness, and to explore their movement abilities and the unlimited scope of their imagination. The elements, principles, and the technique of dance are taught through guided exercises, stretches, improvisations, movement games/tasks, and short choreographies. The creative part of the workshop is inspired by the motifs from the sphere of art, stories, fairy tales, natural phenomena, and, of course, daily life. This kind of creative expression also develops higher levels of children’s awareness of others and their feelings. The workshop thus enables the children to cultivate the appreciation of dance and dance arts, as well as of other people. And the appreciation of others presents the basis for growing as individuals as well as for doing and creating things together. The year-round workshop concludes with a public presentation.

Mentor: Barbra Kanc
