Pre-School Dance Classes

PRE-SCHOOL BALLET, TAP, TUMBLE COMBO (3-5 year olds)

25 minutes of ballet, 20 minutes of tap and 15 minutes of tumble

This first portion of class incorporates the fundamentals of ballet movement for the pre-school level dancer. Individualized attention to our youngest dancers is given as they learn beginning terminology & steps. Students will learn ballet & tap terminology, use of barre, warm-up exercises and combinations as well as listening skills, how to take turns and follow directions.  While enjoying dance class, students are learning to work on basic motor skills including running, skipping, hopping, leaping & jumping. In tap, students will begin to learn single & double sounds with an emphasis on musicality and music awareness while learning rhythms and enhancing their fine motor skills. This class develops not only movement, flexibility and balance, but also individuality & peer group skills.
