Teens can ‘Get Down
to Dance’ at the library
Norman-area teens can “Get Down to Dance” this summer with the guidance of a modern dance instructor.
Rachel Hendricks, who has about 10 years teaching across a range of ages and ability levels, will work with teens at PLS hometown libraries this summer to instill a few things they can quickly learn and handle.
The program takes place at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Norman Public Library.
“We’ll work on how to isolate different parts of the body in dancing, things they can take to social settings,” Hendricks said. “We do it in a way of seeing what dance is and what it can be. Dance can be a real confidence builder.”
