Our Preschool Classes for 3 & 4 year olds are designed to help your child develop a fondness for dance and build a foundation for future learning. This hour-long class meets once per week September through June and consists of 30 minutes of Ballet and 30 minutes of Tap. The songs we sing, the steps we teach, the activities we explore and the exercises we do are all geared to the pre-school learning level. Our classes stress the importance of warming up the muscles before beginning any form of exercise. The discipline of Ballet is introduced in various forms, including fun exercises and imaginative role play. Graceful arm movements, balance, learning right from left, rhythm & coordination are also part of the class. The Tap portion of the class teaches young students the most basic Tap steps and is designed to prepare children for the Tap levels to follow as they grow.
All Preschool Classes perform in our June recital. Students must be three years old by October 1st and potty trained in order to enroll.
