Benefits of BodyMoxie Dance

benefit

In addition to our regular instructors, school programs may feature 1-2 guest teachers each semester to expose students to other dance forms or teaching styles.

We continually encourage students to create their own dances, group or solo, allowing them to explore their potential as creators.

We occasionally layer in other art forms. For example, in hip hop classes we teach a section on “spoken word” so that the students can create self-empowerment raps and learn more about music, rhythm, voice and poetry.

We welcome a dance performance or informal showing for the students to experience performing and share what they have learned.
