Please note: My virtual dance lessons are now available through Canvas. I have posted individual class lesson plans and will update each week with new assignments. Students are able to login into Canvas and set up a student account to complete assignments, communicate with me, and be graded through. I will continue emailing parents and students each week with updates. If you are not receiving my emails weekly, please send me an email at kushnern@ivyhawnschool.org and give me your email address to add. It is important that all students go on to the Canvas page and complete their assignments to stay current in our dance curriculum and continue their training and growth in dance. They will be given grades for these assignments for their 4th quarter. Instructions are below:
