My name is Mallory Gehrmann and I would like to personally welcome you and your child to my dance class. I am a recent graduate from Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin with a Bachelor’s in Social Work and a Dance minor. I will be a graduate of Loyola University in May with my Master’s in Clinical Social Work. Growing up, I received my dance training at a local studio in Madison. With my love for dance, I decided to continue on with my training in college. While there, I taught at a local dance studio. For the last two summers, I have taught at Monona Recreation Department.
My goal this semester is to share the gift of dance to your child. I will provide a fun, supportive, and comfortable learning environment. This learning environment will encourage self-esteem, and will help your child develop a love of and appreciation for the art of dance.
Jazz: Jazz is a style of dance that finds its roots in ballet, but was enhanced by musical trends, social dances, and the popularization of dance through movies and musicals. These classes place an emphasis on isolating body parts, increased flexibility, and creative dance sequences.
Hip-Hop: This class is designed to facilitate the best functions of the body. Students work from a warm-up to locomotive floor work, then a cool-down. Moves and choreography will be introduced.
Freestyle: This class introduces young children to music, movement, and dance while fostering imagination and creativity. Children are encouraged to explore movement and dance in fun ways. It also gives children an understanding of the classroom community, improves their social skills, and develops their fine motor skills all while they have fun! Students will be able to express their own creativity and develop their coordination and balance while dancing to some of their favorite songs.
