Children 1 Class
Classes introduce the children to a classroom situation in a relaxed way through fun and challenging work. It introduces the children to the beauty and grace of dance arts while infusing musicality and rhythm. They learn socialization skills, improve coordination abilities, and develop their imagination. Gentle flexibility and strengthening exercises are done on the floor, and are made fun and enjoyable.
Children 2 & 3 Classes
Classes incorporate the skills and activities from Children 1, but on a higher, age-appropriate level. Dancers begin to learn basic ballet positions, basic steps, and their French terminology. Physical coordination is increased with plies, stretching, splits and jumps. Counting music while dancing is introduced.
