TINY DANCER (1.5 to 3 years):
The moment your child enters the room we challenge their imaginations, musicality and coordination with music they are already familiar with. WE give them tambourines, balls, hula hoops, and rhythm sticks to help find the beat. Teddy bears become dancing partners to galop or sneak around the room with. Balls to jump over and more! Sneaking, jumping, spinning, running, creeping, toe points are just some of the elements of the class. 30 minutes of nonstop fun with mom, dad, or grandparents!
KINDERDANCE (3,4 years)
Now 3 & 4! 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.
PRE BALLET JAZZ (5,6 years)
Time to explore ballet and jazz, Circle work, across the floor, jumps, spins, and 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 Nutcracker, or do they just want to enjoy one or two classes a week in Contemporary Ballet, Hip Hop or Acro? Lots of choices!!!
