Dance Expressions

 

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.
Age   5-6

Primary STORYTIME DANCE™ Curriculum

Ballet/Tap/Jazz/Creative Dance

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.
