We offer free hip hop classes every Wednesday at the Goggle Works Center for the Arts in Reading, PA by engaging youth in art therapy through dance!
Dance is a powerful option for children and adolescents to promote mental wellness. Children are natural movers, thus, dance can be an inviting and non-threatening way for them to express themselves. Through the use of dance we assist in children’s explorations of their self awareness, self-confidence, emotional regulation, empathy, and social skills. Hip Hop Dance has been proven to use large motor play, physical regulation, nonverbal communication, problems solving skills with individuals and groups of children.
