World Dance Class

One of our special classes is World Dance on Monday nights. In the two months that class has been in session, they learned four dances and a choreographed warm up.

Also a German Polka, French Folk, Polish, and even Swedish dances have been a part of this class. Our creative director picks dances based upon the family history of the students. It’s a way of connecting the heritage in dance.

This is one of the ways that makes Cannon Falls School of Dance unique and a very important part of the community.
