Our Tiny Tots program is a 3-month mini-course designed for children ages 2 1/2 – 3. Your child will explore the world of dance while moving to the music in a fun and creative way. At the end of the course, parents will be invited to a special in-house presentation. This course prepares students for our Kinderdance Program. This class is 45 minutes.
Dress Code: Any color leotard, optional skirt or tight-fitting dance shorts, pink, tan or white tights and pink leather Ballet shoes.
Our Kinderdance Course for ages 3 & 4 is designed to help your child develop a fondness for dance. The songs we sing, the steps we teach, the games we play and the exercises we do are all geared to the pre-school learning level. We encourage student imitation through our activities. Songs and dances simple enough for the young students to execute easily are presented so that they may develop a feeling of self-confidence.
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. Students begin learning Tap in September wearing their Ballet Shoes, and graduate to Tap Shoes in early January.
All Kinderdancers are invited to perform in our June recital. Students must be three years old by October 15th and potty trained in order to enroll.
In addition to our 3 & 4 year old Kinderdance classes, we are offering classes specifically for 4 year olds. These Kinderdance classes will be held at various times during the week as well as on Saturdays, and students must be age 4 by October 1st in order to enroll in this class. Students in our 4 year old Kinderdance classes will use both their Ballet and Tap shoes starting in September. Students who are 4 years old are welcome to join either of our Kinderdance courses.
