Children in the community are taking dance classes hosted by the university’s preforming arts program.

Professor Laurel Sears instructs a class at the university level which teaches students the basics of conducting a toddler dance class on a professional level.

Sears says the class is a creative movement-based class that teaches children ages three to ten to use their excited energy and direct it towards a creative form of expression.

“It’s just a joy to get to know kids and be around their sweet energy. It’s fun to get to know professionals that will be going into the world and they get to have a little more of a voice as a teacher in this space,” Sears said.

The classes run for twelve weeks and students can still enroll after the first week.
