Ages 3-4 is an introduction to dance. The primary goal is to foster a love of movement. The creative compon ent is quite large. Several fun or special activities happen in each class. For example, a scarf or flag dance at the end can facilitate the dancer's own physical expression. Taking part in dancing out a narrative helps children to understand that dancing is expression. It is a means of communicating feelings and actions. The vocabulary covered in Preschool Dance Level 1 is all steps which a 3 year old can master and they build self-confidence. The vocabulary is also set up to prepare students for Tap, Dancesport, Jazz/Hip Hop or/and Ballet Class. Tuesday 5:30pm class is two classes in one - dance and basic tumbling skills for preschoolers! This stimulating class presents basic ballet terminology and steps and incorporates creative choreography. Leaps, jumps and turns are practiced. Also, basic floor gymnastics such as rolls, headstands, handstands, cartwheels and more are taught.

Skills worked on over the course of a year study:

  • - Gross motor skills (jump on two feet, balance on one leg, gallop, leap like a frog, duck squat walk, etc.)
  • - Rhythm skills
  • - Body awareness
  • - Spatial awareness (over, under, around, forward, backward, sideways)
  • - Creative movement expression
  • - Listening skills
  • - Social skills

Children will progress at various levels depending on age and individual strengths. All skills are practiced through a variety of songs and dance with a focus on repetition of skills to lead to mastery of movement and a variety of music to lead to music appreciation.
