Classes

Pre-school program Ages (2 - 4)

Our 60 minute class is a great mix of structure and fun!.  Students focus on learning basic technique, taking directions, develop hand-eye coordination, rhythm, performance, memorization, and socialization.

We introduce the movements and names of positions and steps through song, dance and fun props  Students are also introduce to tumbling (somersaults, rolls, jumps, bridges, etc).

Dancing increases flexibility, strength, balance, grace, endurance and coordination.  Students practice moving as a group and following directions while dancing to a wide variety of music.  Children who dance have increased self-esteem, coordination, balance and poise.
