Boys Ensemble and Girls Ensemble are designed for older students with a connection to dance as a performing art. These classes emphasize a higher attention to detail and complexity within the group. The students will present different musical choices and will pick two pieces which will be choreographed for a performance. Students are encouraged to express their own style and teach each other the steps that will shape the dance. This class fosters an exploration of diverse movements and challenges students to create a unique dance experience.
Please see schedule below for Girls Ensemble Class time and Boys Ensemble Class time.

Students registered for classes in Fall Term are automatically reenrolled in Spring Term.

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.
