At Luna’s Studio Lab – an after-school program for children ages 4 to 17 – every child and young adult develops their ‘whole body intelligence’ through composition dance-learning.
Students begin with the simple exploration of dance concepts. As they progress through the composition-based curriculum, they accumulate skills and learn to build full choreographic works that explore solo, duet, trio, quartet and group forms in a rigorous way. Luna’s unique approach to teaching dance is informed by a deep understanding of the creative process, sound principles of child development, and knowledge of how children construct their own definitions of themselves, others and the world.
Dance involves risk and playfulness. All Creative Dance and Modern Dance classes provide safe yet challenging opportunities for students to discover, invent, perform and respond, learning to create dances through active participation, guided discovery and critical reflection.
