Intermediate 1

Intensive Intermediate 1 Dance & Math & Music

An innovative and exciting workshop exploring the magical connection of math, music and dance.  Studies have shown dance and music instruction enhances students’ mathematical skills, whether they are visual/spatial or auditory learners.  In this inspiring and fun program students will physically experience the often abstract concepts of math.

In addition to a daily ballet class students may have modern, jazz, African and/or character dance. All classes will use math concepts as students explore spatial and rhythmic patterns, ratios, fractions and geometric shapes. Using these concepts they will create dance phrases, and listen to and compose their own music using melodic and rhythm instruments. A performance piece will be presented at the end of the week.
