Dance Technique

Ki Society Aikido

Ages 8-10

Ages 5-12

While still an introduction to all the dance basics, this is the age when students really begin to grasp an understanding and appreciation for technique. Whether it is in ballet, hip-hop, or tap, students gain confidence, personal grace and poise from their connection and experience with accomplishment. In this class students will make individual accomplishments in dance and have fun doing it. Min. 6-Max. 12 Instructor: Theresa Kelsay

Aikido is a martial art that uses joint locks and throws as its self- defense mechanisms. It is a circular, blending art that requires very little physical strength. Our style emphasizes the mental side of martial arts. Both fine and gross motor skills, blended in with some self-defense are learned, with focus and fun at the same time. Min. 4-Max. 15 Instructor: Rob Hafford, Midland Ki Society
