In Creative Dance, students learn to respond to musical cues and sound with movement, self-expression, and their own imaginations. Students will learn to collaborate in duets, small groups, and as individuals. The class uses games to encourage the development of the creative process while placing emphasis on cooperation and support within the group. Each class is tailored to the students and students are encouraged to share their ideas and learn from each other.
Open enrollment for Spring semester begins on January 9. Creative Dance (4-5) Classes have two semesters:

Brookline Music School's Dance Program explores kinesthetic creativity by using movement, music, props, games and play to develop and link students’ learning into complex dance moves and phrases. Dance Instructor Tom Krusinski starts with each child’s strengths within individual and ensemble work, engaging them using the practices of Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, including spatial, linguistic, mathematical and logical. Such intelligences assist in emotional and behavioral control, resisting impulses, developing cognitive flexibility and memory, and bringing courage and joy to meeting challenging situations in and out of the dance class.
