"Our Body is Our Instrument"  ~ Author Unknown
     My name is Rebecca Hobbs.  I started teaching Dance at Perkins in 2002 and I have the joy of teaching dance to every child at Perkins.  We have two dance adjuncts, Ms. Brittany and Ms. Maddie, who also work with our dance students throughout the year. Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade classes attend dance class for 40 minutes, and 4th & 5th grade classes attend dance class for 45 minutes once every other week.
    The Dance Program at Perkins is designed to expose children to a variety of dance forms and techniques while encouraging self-discipline and confidence. Our students develop body control and coordination while learning dance steps, terminology, combinations, and dances. The dancers will experiment with creative movement and be introduced to choreographic principles and processes. Perkins students will gain an appreciation for the art of Dance.


    Dance Attire for general classes: Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes to school on the day that they have dance class. Students may bring dance shoes to class, but it is not required.

    Dance Focus Class: Fourth and Fifth Grade students who have a strong interest in dance may choose it for their Focus. Focus classes meet for one hour a week during the school day. These dancers are expected to wear specific dance attire and dance shoes during Focus class. The Dance Focus groups perform throughout the year and are required to attend after school rehearsals. Our big event is the Dance Finale at the end of the school year!
