PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS ages 2-5
2019/20 Preschool Dance Schedule
All of our preschool programs are structured to assist young dancers in their physical development while also engaging their creativity.
Rainbow Rhythms (age 2): An excellent introduction to music and movement. Young children are accompanied by a parent as they leap, gallop and fly, learning the beginning basics of dance.
Jitterbugs (age 3): Children learn the basics of dance through musical games. We focus on creative movement to build the necessary gross motor skills needed for primary dance instruction. Fun upbeat music is used to teach introductory ballet steps. With wonderful improvisation, young dancers are able to develop their musicality.
Tumble Bugs 1: An introduction to modified acrobatic skills that are developmentally appropriate for preschoolers. Children will learn the basics of dance and explore creative movement.
Tumble Bugs 2 (ages 4-6): An introduction to modified acrobatic skills that are developmentally appropriate for preschoolers. Children will learn the basics of ballet, and jazz, as well as explore creative movement.
Steps & Shining Stars (ages 4-5 & 5-6): Both children’s dance classes include the fundamentals of ballet, jazz and tap, while still incorporating elements of Creative Movement so necessary for young dancers to be engaged. Young dancers will learn basic ballet positions as well as introductory jazz and tap technique. Classes for Shining Star dancers become a little more skill specific as this age group is physically capable of more.
Hip Hop Boppers (ages 4-6): A creative movement class where young dancers move to the beat of pop music. Children will learn some basic hip hop moves that enhance and develop coordination. A fun filled class perfect for young dancers who want to ‘freestyle’. An excellent complement to our Steps program!
