|Age Group||Class Name||Class Description|
|Age 2 at start of school year||
|This pre-ballet dance class is designed for students to take independently. Activities change every few minutes to keep the students engaged in gross & fine motor movements for dance.|
|Age 3-4||Preschool STORYTIME DANCE™ Curriculum: Ballet/Tap/Jazz/Creative Dance||This whole dance class is a story from beginning to end incorporating age appropriate skills in ballet, jazz, creative movement, and tap. The dance class begins with a ballet story and then students repeat the ballet skills once more in the same order to traditional music. The story engages them on their level allowing them to learn more skills because they are actively focused for a longer period of time.|
Primary STORYTIME DANCE™ Curriculum
|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.
|Ages 7+||Hip Hop||A totally clean version of this structured form of street dance- Hip Hop teaches coordination, strength, rhythm, quickness, agility, and endurance.|
