Welcome to WMS Dance! I am thrilled to be teaching dance class this school year. I am committed to making my classroom a safe and challenging environment, yet provoking each individual to think critically. In dance class we will explore a variety of dance styles and techniques through history, terminology, research, observations, critiques, choreography, and movement. In addition to dance styles we will create dance studies, expand our knowledge of the human anatomy, display audience etiquette, and have the opportunity to perform.
