A community dance project for the over 40 crowd
Thursday’s, 11:00am - 12:15pm
Mota Perpetua is Latin for perpetual motion. This dance class and optional performances are for the dancer and dancer-wanna-be’s who thrive on movement, music and self-expression.
In the weekly class, participants learn anatomically sound dance skills and have an opportunity to put them into practice through fun choreography. A new sequence is studied each the month, giving students 4-5 classes developing and learning to “own” the choreography. Those who wish to perform can take it to the next level where we will focus on musicality, phrasing and enhancing performance quality through regular rehearsals.

Participation in class is required to perform.
