Preschool Creative Dance
This 8 week mini-series introduces the beginning concepts that we build throughout the year in our year-long classes. This class uses music and props to engage our students in developmentally appropriate movement. Basic ballet steps are introduced along with developmental concepts such as crossing the mid-line, balancing, identifying rhythm, as well as gross motor skills. We encourage the children to integrate their evolving movement vocabulary as well as explore new movement options during activities. *Please note that our 8-week Creative Dance class does not include tap.
Thursdays: 10:30am-11:15am; 1:30-2:15; 4:15pm-5:00pm
