Preschool Dance Program (Ballet & Creative Movement)
Preschool Program
      Ages 3 - 4 is an introduction to dance. The primary goal is to foster a love of movement. The creative component is quite large. Several fun or special activities happen in each class. For example, a scarf or flag dance at the end can facilitate the dancer's own physical expression. Taking part in dancing out a narrative helps children to understand that dancing is expression. It is a means of communicating feelings and actions. Children will learn the basics of tumbling on a mat. The vocabulary covered in our Preschool Program are all steps which a 3 year old can master and they build self-confidence. The vocabulary is also set up to prepare students for our Pre-Ballet Program. Parents will receive progress assessments for their children twice a year. This evaluation will give parents a sense of class content and the goals of the program. These students will have the opportunity to perform in one routine in the annual recital.

Pre-Ballet Program
      Ages 4 - 5 covers a basis of movement found in all dance forms. The goals of Pre-Ballet are to foster creativity, freedom, and expression in movement, and a love for dance. The class includes concepts that are found in an older child's dance class. The concepts will prepare the students for the following year when they graduate to Primary Ballet and/or Primary Jazz. One or two creative or free components are also included within each class. By the end of the year, the students can dance set work independent of the teacher, memorize simple exercises and sequences, and make a start of musical interpretation. Parents will receive progress assessments for their children twice a year. This evaluation will give parents a sense of class content and goals of the program. Pre-Ballet Program students will have the opportunity to perform in two routines in the annual recital.
