    My Classroom Mission
     
    Dancers will understand and demonstrate the elements of dance; time, space, and energy, and choreographic principles to create student based choreography.  They will also recognize the human body as an instrument of expression and become more kinesthetically aware, improve their dance technique, physical strength and flexibility.
