Our goal in the Young Children’s Division classes introduce the joy of movement and creative expression along with the building blocks of coordination, body and spatial awareness, teamwork, and self-confidence. Come and start to build a foundation in dance with us! Please enroll according to your child’s age, this ensures that our students are learning in a positive environment surrounded by their peers.
Creative Movement gives dancers ages 3-4 a joyful way to experience movement, music, and self-expression at a young age. In this energetic 45-minute class dancers will explore different rhythms, shapes, and movement qualities as well as follow a structured progression of basic steps and combinations. It is a fun prelude to our “Pre-Dance” classes while continuing to develop motor and social skills to promote self-confidence! We do ask that a parent/guardian is present during class time.
