Young Children’s Division
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.
