Interplay School of Dance has a simple philosophy for teaching young children: Let each child find a way to enjoy movement. Through structured and free movement our teachers guide the students, allowing each to discover his or her body's capabilities and potential. By stimulating mental and physical creativity (musically, spatially and rhythmically) children discover the magical world of dance, how their bodies react to the music and how much fun they can have trying to master it.
