Welcome to Nagata Dance!
Nagata Dance offers in-school, after-school, summer camp and Saturday classes that enhance students' coordination, self-confidence and self-expression. Dance classes are fun, lively and engaging. Children practice positive behavior, learn to become part of an "organic" whole (work together) and express themselves in new and empowering ways. Ms. Nagata and her staff combine dance styles (jazz, hip hop, ballet and creative movement) to engage a wide variety of students and to inspire their curiosity and participation. By a program's conclusion, students will have worked together in a nurturing, structured and creative environment, as well as successfully and joyously capturing all movements (choreography) in a given dance piece.
The environment of dance class is positive, high-energy and nurturing. The staff at Nagata Dance promotes students to work together, be creative and practice active listening. All enrolled with Nagata Dance are expected to:
1. Dance. This is a movement-based activity. Coordination and muscle memory will be developed, and we encourage all to participate with 100% effort.
2. Respect the teacher(s), classmates and space. We strive to create a fun and safe environment for all students; this requires each person to be aware of his/her surroundings and respectful of each other.
Comfortable clothing that provides flexible and wide-ranging motion is advised. Please wear sturdy, rubber-soled shoes. Sandals, skirts, and dresses are not advised. To maintain maximum focus, avoid loose jewelry and tie hair away from face. Wear removable layers and choose breathable materials that allow the body to stay cool while dancing.
