We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will update with a new expected date of release as soon as we are able.

Program Description

Freestyle animation dance is all about inviting students to move and groove from a place of instinct and improvisation. Carlos “Retro” Rasmussen will teach students foundational skills like popping, locking, and animation, but the expression truly comes alive when the students make it their own by moving like water or expressing joy through dance. This lesson touches on dance and physical education standards.
