MORE THAN 250 kindergarten students from across the Comox Valley school district were treated to free dance workshops at Pantuso Dance in May and June.

 

Workshops consisted of dance demonstrations by the faculty as well as mini sessions in hip-hop and ballet. This

outreach program was designed to expose young kids to dance at a primary level to teach them that the performing arts can be inclusive, challenging and most of all fun.

“The faculty at Pantuso Dance believe very strongly in creating an environment where students feel safe to explore their creativity to its full extent,” the school says in a news release. “Students that attended the workshops all had an amazing time and left feeling excited about dance in general.

“From exploring the creative dancer with scarves, to pretending to be princes and princesses, to getting down with some smooth hip

hop; the classes were a great introduction to the arts for the many children that would not otherwise be exposed to a dance class situation in their daily lives.”
