Each level of dance classes at Groove With Me adheres to the New York State Art Standards for Dance. Students will not only be able to engage in the process of dance, but be knowledgeable about what they are doing and able to discuss their participation.
Classes are offered in hip hop, ballet, tap, and beyond with a goal to increase gross motor skills. Our classes begin with "circle time" where the girls sit in a circle and share what’s happening in their lives.
On the first day of class the girls brainstorm their own rules, how they like to be treated, and how they think the teacher should be treated. Throughout their semesters at Groove With Me they continue to talk and think about their actions and the actions of others. They develop a sense of ownership over their surroundings and the world in which they live.
The Women’s Sports Foundation found that girls who engage in physical activity have lower risks for breast cancer, diabetes, teen pregnancy, drug use and a host of other health problems. 90% of teen violence occurs between the hours of 3pm and 6pm.
