With So Many Options


Pre-School Creative Movement (3-4 Year old)

* Age 3-4 years (must be 3 by August 31) 3 year old class meets once a week for 45 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.

From the moment we entered the studio, our children felt special and loved. AOD is a place where every dancer learns proper dance technique with dedicated teachers, but also realizes the importance of having fun and still being age appropriate. Our children are encouraged to do their best, while being nurtured to know that they can reach any goal that they dream. What I love most is our daughters learn an endless amount of life lessons such as team dedication, hard work, respect, and self confidence. These skills and virtues are a wonderful foundation as they grow. Thank you Academy of Dance for all you do for our daughters.
