Avery Ranch Studio
Primary STORYTIME DANCE™ Curriculum (5-6yr)
Ballet dance traditionally tells a story, however dancers usually tell the story with their bodies rather than with words. This dance class begins with the teacher telling a ballet story as the students demonstrate the traditional ballet skills. Then the students repeat the ballet skills once more without the words, using the French terminology and classical music. This actively engages them in the ballet skills for a longer period of time. Then students learn jazz, creative movement, and tap. Tap is usually the last 20 min. of class.
