*Dance it Out! Dance it Out! is a fun, unique way for students to get exercise and learn the basics of movement and dance in a judgement free, encouraging space. Each class will start with a warm-up to get students comfortable and ready to dance. Via the watch-and-follow method, students will then learn fun, simple choreography to their favorite songs, and will also have the chance to freestyle! We will end the class with a cool down and a stretch. This class aims to improve and increase body awareness, motor function, and most importantly, confidence. Students will have so much fun in Dance it Out that they won't even realize that they are breaking a sweat!
