Our Caravan Kids Project classes combine TVC's three signature styles: fusing World DancePercussive Dance, and Modern Dance to train children ages 7-12 as official Caravan Kids.

- Through a unique combination of modern warm-ups, games, and exercises, students gain an understanding of modern dance technique while also learning traditional folk dances from all around the world.  At the end of each class, we lace-up our tap shoes for Percussive—learning a mix of Appalachian clogging, tap, step, and rhythmic body percussion.

- In addition to learning all these traditions and techniques, all of our Caravan Kids are encouraged to express themselves in a non-competitive and lively atmosphere, working individually, with partners, and as a group to skip, jump, twirl, tap, shuffle, slap, stomp, clog, clap, and sing around the world.

- Students who take these classes have opportunities to perform with us in our annual "Into The Light" Holiday Show collaboration with Arm-of-the-Sea Theater, and Springtime performances in the Beltane Festival Pageant at The Stone Mountain Farm.  


Wednesdays / Ages 4-7 / 4:00-4:45pm at MaMA in Stone Ridge

Thursdays / Ages 4-6 / 4:00-4:45pm at Mountain Laurel Waldorf School in New Paltz

Creative Movement is wonderful introduction to the world of dance. A combination of simple choreography, circle songs, rhythm, shape, and imaginative story-telling gives children a full-range of movement. As a class, we explore what it feels like to move through the changing of the seasons, dance in different atmospheres, take on shapes, emotions, or move as animals. Children become an active part of the class structure—always given the opportunity to explore and express their creativity.
