Creative dance is a form of dance that provides the potential for personal expression. There is no right or wrong way of moving and the classes are conducted quite differently from traditional dance classes. One of the goals of creative dance is to communicate through movement and the dancer draws on their own inner resources to create and express through their own unique movement. The aim of creative dance classes is to continually expand and extend movement range by drawing inspiration from a range of external stimuli including music, props, emotions and other dancers.
The benefits of Creative dance span across mind, body and spirit. Some of the benefits of Creative Dance include:
•Enhanced physical fitness – including strength, flexibility
•Improved Social skills – self esteem, communication, working with others.
•Improved wellbeing – reduction of stress/anxiety
This style of dance and teaching is based on developing the individuals own dancing. This makes creative dance an accessible form of dance for almost anyone, including people with no prior dance training and people with limited mobility or special needs.
