The beauty, grace, and athleticism of the Duncan technique builds strength, musicality, and freedom of movement. Within the Duncan aesthetic, children breathe through floor exercises followed by skips, runs, leaps, and tosses – all to great classical music. Includes Greek mythology, story telling, and nature imagery. Registration is now open!

Do you have a special way of teaching Duncan Dance?
Lori Belilove replies: “I bring many elements of life into the classes. We learn as we dance, and there is often an overlap of Greek mythology and art history. It becomes a whole world for us. I feel so strongly that this style feeds the whole person and taps a dancer’s imagination, heart, and soul. I have seen it promote a strong physicality, which is based on natural, organic movement.”
