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.

Sunday: 11:30am-12:15pm

Monday: 4:45pm-5:30pm

Thursdays: 10:30am-11:15am; 1:30-2:15; 4:15pm-5:00pm



This class is offered to students of all levels.  It is a fun introduction to two very different styles of upbeat movement.  Students will warm-up and learn combinations incorporating both techniques.


 7-9 year olds: Tuesday 5:30-6:15

10-12 year olds: Wednesday 6:30-7:15



Students are invited to get their wiggles out when it is too cold to play outside.  This fun high energy class will introduce clean, age-appropriate variations of multiple styles of hip-hop while dancing to clean versions of popular music.
