This class meets on Zoom. All ages welcome!
Jean Appolon Expressions recognizes that there is a great need for more diverse early childhood arts programs (3-8 years old), especially in regard to movement arts. The virtual classroom space that Covid-19 has made so necessary became an opportunity for JAE to pilot its first offering for young children. Creative Dance for Kids introduces young children to the art of dance using patterns, movement words, music and storytelling. Haitian Folkloric rhythms and movements are woven into the class in a child-friendly fashion. Each week a different theme is explored and allows young participants to hear about and discuss social justice topics through age-appropriate literature and conversation. Past and future themes include kindness, acceptance, noticing and appreciating differences, identity, standing up against injustice, and love.
This class is co-taught by Company Director Jean Appolon (he/him/his) and Executive Director/Dancer Meghan McGrath (she/her/hers).
