Creative Dance Workshops

Our dance educator inspires your students with workshops designed to develop their understanding of the elements of dance, choreographic techniques, and classical and contemporary dance. The workshop’s close connection with your curriculum is valuable for teachers, while students enjoy learning about how to move and invent dances.

“Pagan is wonderful! How does she have the energy? Our roll has grown so she certainly worked hard that day, but had the kids eating out of her hands , from 5 – 13 years old.” – Maria Higgison Deputy Principal, Our Lady of Kapiti School

“Thanks for offering such a wonderful opportunity to my students! I look forward to seeing their faces when they see the movements they have leant on Thursday at the School Matinee performance.”– Anita Imlach, Rosehill Intermediate School
