Ages 3 - 7
Our Children's Academy is developing students with a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem within an environment that encourages expressiveness and joy of movement. Children learn increased control and coordination in their movements. They also enhance their listening, cooperation, and social skills in a nurturing environment. Imagination and movement will be a great precursor to help your dancer in any area of their life. As they move into the Pre-Ballet class they will need more focus and work ethic. They will be learning all aspects of the classroom and training.
Students in the Children's Academy have two optional performance opportunities during the year.
Creative Movement is for students ages 3-4. Classes encourage imagination, self-expression, and group interaction while introducing students to basic movement and music concepts and proper classroom etiquette. Classes are 45 minutes long, once a week, for an 18-week semester. Students may take Creative Movement classes for two years.
Pre-Ballet classes offer a prelude to formal ballet instruction for 5-7 year olds. Students are introduced to ballet vocabulary and barre work while building flexibility of movement, dance exploration and classroom decorum. Classes are 45 minutes long, once a week, for an 18-week semester.
