We will be working with the theme LANGUAGE: trying out different dance styles, moving to express ourselves, playing with the power of communication and the fun and frustration that comes with it. We will use different movement styles including: Contemporary dance, Vogue-chi, Hip-hop, Caribbean dance, Kathak and Martial arts.
