This will be my seventh year teaching dance for EIAA and I am excited! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Dance. I started out teaching 3rd/4th grade at Clearfield Elementary. While teaching there I also taught various dance styles at Leslie's Dance Emporium in Creston, IA. I started out here teaching 2nd grade at Arthur Elementary. I'm still at Arthur but now I teach 4th grade! I've been dancing since I was three and am familiar with a vast range of dance styles.

As we look at the different animals and cultures Australia has to offer we will be exploring how to express these ideas through movement. We will also be learning a variety of jazz moves and terminology as we learn the basic moves such as turns, kicks, jumps, leaps, and basic combinations.||dance||0.00||Arthur||Monday |
