PRE BALLET / TAP
At this early stage, young dancers learn basic ballet and tap techniques using fun and imaginative stretching and movement exercises. This gentle introduction to classical ballet will also aid in developing coordination, spatial awareness, and fine and gross motor skills. Children will delight in the tap portion of the class that encourages imagination, creativity as well as group interaction, and working together!
In this class, we will begin learning basic dance steps and body placement through playful movement exercises with elements of storytelling. Stretches and activities are geared toward engaging the whole child and teaching them to express themselves through music and movement. Our curriculum builds on practical and motor skills gained during this developmental stage and introduces body kinesthetic learning with tactile props and visual aids. Dance concepts such as spatial awareness, body shapes and positions, and counting music will be fun and easy to grasp! This class will give students the firm foundation they need to pursue technical training and will instill a lifelong relationship with the arts.
JAZZ AND HIP HOP
This high-energy class instills rhythm, coordination, and balance through age-appropriate movements set to fun and upbeat music. Jazz technique will provide structured body placement and technique through floor work, turns, kicks and jumps. Hip Hop is a very rhythm focused, dynamic movement and will help dancers develop muscle memory through learning choreography. Basic steps and terminology will be taught in a variety of ways to reinforce memory of the steps. This will be a fun and fast-paced class, but will also teach students the importance of a proper warm up and stretch to take care of their bodies. Creativity and individuality will be heavily encouraged to help students become comfortable and confident on the dance floor. Kids will have a blast expressing themselves through improvisation and working together to create a routine!
In a time of uncertainty and anxiety, yoga is an amazing way for kids to center themselves and come back to a peaceful place. Students will learn and practice how to move gracefully, breathe smoothly and deeply, sustain their focus and concentration while developing strength, flexibility, and mental clarity.
