Dance Fundamentals Classes

Our program is designed to develop focus, coordination, and spatial awareness, as well as building confidence in one’s creative abilities. Dance Fundamentals classes are the perfect step in preparing a young student to enter more formal dance classes, much like kindergarten prepares them for first grade.

Class Descriptions:

Creative Movement (Preschool)
Walk, run, leap, jump, hop! Children gain body awareness and self-esteem through child-centered, movement-oriented games and music led by their natural desire to explore, experience, and discover their own creativity.

Expressive Dance A (Kindergarten)
Skip, gallop, and slide! The goal of Expressive Dance A is to familiarize children with the elements of dance and build confidence in their own creative ability to express through movement.

Expressive Dance B (1st Grade)
Welcome to dance class! Children increase the skills they have honed in Expressive Dance A while developing focus, coordination, and spatial awareness.

Ballet Basics (2nd Grade)
Plié, Relevé, Sauté! An introduction to ballet. Here is where we begin to develop ballet concepts including turn out, coordination, spatial awareness, and a specific focus on class etiquette. Students will begin positions of the feet, and introductory movement vocabulary.
