preschool dance

ages 3-4

Our Pre-School program meets once a week for 1 hour and are designed specifically for 3 and 4 year olds. The class is broken down into 25 minute increments of ballet and tap ending with 10 minutes of free dance, where we play follow the leader while learning basic jazz steps. Students will learn the basics of both ballet and tap steps, positions, and basic movement patterns as well as work on developing their gross motor skills. Repetition is used each week for maximum retention of steps. With the use of creative movement and imagination the children are able to successfully learn basic dance steps and self-expression needed to advance to the next levels of dance.

creative movement

ages 2-3

For our tiniest dancers we offer a 30 minute class that meets once a week. Students are introduced to basic dance movements while developing gross motor skills, classroom manners (listening, following directions, taking turns, etc.), and working in a group. Because these children are in the beginning stages of learning about the class environment the maximum number of students we allow in each creative movement class is seven. Students must be 2 by the first day of class to enroll.
Dress Code: Leotard, Tights & Pink Ballet Shoes (White Tap shoes starting in January)
