Creativity Class – (PreFS & above)

There is more to skating than jumping, spinning and connecting steps.  These are just elements. Truly wonderful skaters effectively manipulate elements to make a statement.  This skill begins with understanding the craft of movement.  Creativity class facilitates movement understanding by reaching the part of the skater that is the composer not the performer.  It is an activity in which physical movement is used  non-functionally and as personal expression.  It is fulfilling to skaters because it engages the mind, body and spirit.
