LEAP Lab: Creative Dance for Kids

Creative Dance for Kids introduces young children to the art of dance using patterns, movement, words, music, and storytelling.

Haitian Folkloric rhythms (played by Jean Appolon Expressions’ Master Drummers) and movements are woven into the class in a child-friendly fashion. Students will explore a social justice theme through age-appropriate literature, conversation, and movement. Past and future themes include kindness, acceptance, noticing and appreciating differences, identity, standing up against injustice, and love. This program is geared towards ages 3-10, but all are welcome!

Presented in collaboration with Jean Appolon Expressions, this class is co-taught by Artistic Director Jean Appolon (he/him/his) and Executive Director/Dancer Meghan McGrath (she/her/hers) and accompanied by Master Drummers Josil Rebert and Arnaud Lauture.
