Eurhythmics builds confidence!
"I had the pleasure of joining Leslie Upchurch's Senior Dalcroze class offered by the Lucy Moses School at Kaufman Music Center. Knowing nothing about Dalcroze, i was very impressed with the classes - meeting others and taking part in the exercises was a lot of fun and participation was easy. Leslie is a great teacher - she inserted anecdotes on her experiences with this interesting method which made the classes feel informal and inviting. Leslie even commented that I moved gracefully. I was so happy to hear this because no one had ever told me this ." Gwen
