This is a wonderful introduction to the world of dance for young dancers. Students will learn foundational techniques of jazz dance in a supportive and encouraging environment to explore their creativity, build confidence, and develop a lifelong love for dance. For dancers ages 8 -13. Meet Vania C. Bynum: Vania C. Bynum, founder of VC Bynum Arts & Education, is a dancer, teacher, and choreographer whose calling is to enhance the life of others through her artistic gifts. A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, Vania has performed at the Paramount & Moore Theaters, Intiman Theatre, Benaroya Hall, Meydenbauer, Langston Hughes, and local churches, leading the Liturgical Dance Ministry at New Beginnings Christian Fellowship for 11 years.
