PRESCHOOL DANCE CLASSES (ages 2 - 6)

 

Intro to Dance - 2 years old

This gentle class is a perfect beginning dance class for preschoolers. The young dancers will focus on rhythm and movement through dance as well as movement stories and games to get them excited about learning.  

Ballet & Acro – 2 to 3 years old
Like most ballet dance classes for toddlers, this one is designed to prepare students for studying ballet by exploring their body in movement and rhythm. Additionally, students will be able to experience basic mat rolls, balancing, and beam work.

Ballet & Tap – 4 to 6 years old
Ballet lessons for kids should increase in complexity as they get older, so this class is designed to further prepare students by engaging in hand and arm work, doing exercises that develop strong feet and backs, and performing stretching and basic ballet jumps and walks. The tap portion will introduce students to rhythm, sound, and movement.
