Do you ever wish you could jump into your favorite storybooks? Do you love to dance and express yourself? The Storybook Dance program combines literacy and the love of reading dance and creative expression to our young learners ages 3-5 years old. Each session the dancers will go on an adventure into a story book and dance their way through the pages while learning fun creative dance. They explore literature music and dance in a fun and engaging way. Come join us for an inspiring leap into the confidence-building story I Believe I Can by Grace Byers. Recommended for ages 3-5. SPOTS ARE LIMITED - Register HERE: https://discoverwcm.salsalabs.org/storybookdanceworkshop?page=register Please note that all NYS mandated health & safety precautions will be followed including social distancing mask requirements & increased and rigorous cleaning. MORE ON THE STEFFI NOSSEN SCHOOL OF DANCE: Steffi Nossen Method encourages students to express themselves through dance. SNSD continues today with the same philosophy that Steffi imbued it with more than eighty years ago. Anyone can dance — and everyone should! We are the oldest dance educational institution in Westchester and proud of the traditions that have been passed down through generations. SNSD is not just a studio but a school and dance community that embraces the Steffi Nossen Method and curriculum that is consistently evaluated and refined. The Steffi Nossen Method is an age and developmentally appropriate curriculum that teaches modern dance technique in the form of dances or patterns rather than repetitive exercises. These patterns become more complex and challenging as students’ progress—making SNDS ideal for beginners to pre-professionals. This joyous approach encourages individual creativity develops technique alignment self-confidence discipline and a respect for the artist and the artist in each dancer.
