The moment your child enters the room we challenge their imaginations, musicality and coordination with music they are already familiar with, and give them tambourines and rhythm sticks to help find the beat, teddy bears to dance with or jump over and more! Sneaking, jumping, spinning, running, creeping, toe points are just some of the elements of the class. 30 minutes of non stop fun with mom, dad, or grandparents!
KINDERDANCE (3,4 years)
Now 3 & 4 they are on there own!! Class music is varied to capture their energy and imaginations…. Jumping is now the norm and patterns, and directions are the new challenge. Basic ballet positions are introduced along with turning jumps, jazz galops, funky spins, facial expressions, hands and arm patterns, and much more.
LITTLE DANCER (5,6 years)
Time to explore ballet, jazz, hip hop and modern dance styles. Circle work, across the floor, jumps, spins, floor work, are stepped up, and this is the year that helps dancers decide where they want to concentrate their dance technique when they turn 7. Do they want to join A Stream where students take multiple classes a week with Cecchetti ballet, Modern and Jazz, acro, hip hop and dance in The Nutcrakcer, or do they just want to enjoy one or two classes a week in Contemporary Ballet, Hip Hop or Acro? Lots of choices!!!
ACRO MINI (5,6 years)
Time to tumble and roll, jump and spin, work on your first cartwheel! This energetic class will have you jumping and tumbling for joy!! Energy required!!
