Language of Dance Centre

*Language of Dance® (LOD), created by world renowned movement specialist Dr. Ann Hutchinson Guest, is a teaching approach that enhances the movement and dance experience. Progression develops from use of the basic components of the movement building blocks to create simple phrases and eventually to the creation of complex combinations of movement. The experience of dance-making is not confined to a specific style or genre.
