Mommy & Me class (2 year olds and a parent or grandparent)

Pre-School Creative Movement - (3-4 years old)
* Age 3-4 years (must be 3 by August 31)

3 year old class meets once a week for 30 minutes
4 year old class meets once a week for 45 minutes

The creative movement program at Academy of Dance is designed to provide pre-school children a strong foundation in elements of dance:

  • Space and how to relate to it as an individual, and as part of a group
  • Locomotor movement
  • Musical rhythm, beats, and time
  • Opposites and directions
  • Elementary positions in ballet

Integrated with these physical concepts are intellectual concepts of self-awareness, creative expression, imagination, team work, and basic body awareness Through participation in these classes, students also learn the basics of classroom behavior and manners which will remain the same throughout their dancing years. These concepts include learning how to take turns, following or leading another dancer, working together with others, and having a positive dance experience.
