Youth Program

Word Dance Theater offers seasonally-themed youth dance classes that explore the human experience within the natural world. Developed by Dicki Johnson Macy BC-DMT, M.Ed.,LMHC, IDMA, our young dancers embody and dance the beauty of the seasons through improvisation and myth-based dances in the legacy of Isadora Duncan.

Students explore how the motions of water, wind, and trees inspire the natural movements of the human body while they learn to honor the dance within themselves and each other. This imaginative work supports the basic locomotor skills of skipping, leaping, and waltzing, and fosters individual and collective grace, honor, heroism, pride and freedom. 

Registration for our Winter/Spring 2018 sessions is now open. Early bird registration closes Friday, December 15, 2017 at 11:59 pm.
