Multicultural dances from around the world to world music with activities for preparing to dance. The sessions will include dances and exercise, starting with easy dances, slowly progressing to more challenging dances. It is anticipated that the group will build up a repertoire of accomplished dances. The exercises are designed to increase stamina, flexibility, strength and balance, relevant to the dances taught. Memory and socialisation are also enhanced through the dance program. There will be rest breaks during the sessions.
REQUIREMENTS: No prior dance experience is necessary, just a basic fitness level. Students should wear light comfortable clothing to allow freedom of movement and sneakers with cotton socks.
