Garri Dance Studio implements California State Dance Standards at Stevenson Elementary School
Seven weeks down and three to go till Stevenson Students take stage performing for friends and family in a "Winter Wonderland" themed show. Garri Dance Studio provides a fun ten week program to all Stevenson Students in Burbank every year including all five California State Dance Standards. Megan Baade teaches grades K-5 all about creative expression, artistic perception, historical and cultural dance, aesthetic valueing and connections and applications of dance. The students have learned how to relate dance to everything they do in life, working as a team with their classmates, using the strength and flexibility required in dance to stay strong and healthy, problem solving and more. Adding dance into the cirriculum at Stevenson has inspired many students to further their dance education, some kids have even told us they would like to incporporate dance into their careers when they grow up! Keep up the good work Stevenson Pirates and break a leg at your peformance on December 10th!
