Preschool Program: Ages 2-5
NEW! Prop Kits for Pre-School classes
IN FALL 2020, WE INTRODUCED PROP KITS TO OUR PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAM! THEY ARE $12 EACH AND AN ENVELOPE WILL GO HOME WITH YOUR DANCER THE FIRST DAY FOR YOU TO SEND BACK $12 CASH OR CHECK THE FOLLOWING WEEK. PLEASE SEND THEIR PROP KIT TO EVERY CLASS! BUT THEY TAKE THEM HOME EACH WEEK.
We are proud of the strong Pre-School age program we offer! Our instructors provide a fun, positive learning environment suitable for our youngest dancers…in a way that they can learn and retain the proper fundamentals and basics that are so important.
Our instructors follow the same structured (and each month having a theme!) lesson plans to ensure accuracy and consistency throughout our program. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a 2 or 3 year old finally master that first position or shuffle step they worked so hard for!
Their prop kit will also include a paper to keep at home, that lists all our themes for the year! On our "DDA Families" password protected page, we will also put some of the monthly theme songs from class, since we've learned kids love to use these at home, too!
Ages 2-3: Tiny Dreamers
A great way to introduce little ones to the art of dance. We'll use games and songs to teach rhythm, movement, and introduce basic ballet. This is a great way to develop basic motor skills, as well as coordination and balance. Ballet shoes required.
Ages 3-5: Tot Hip Hop
Our Hip Hop for tots uses clean and age appropriate music/movement! Jazz shoes are OK to wear in class, but Hip Hop dance sneakers are required for recital.
Ages 3-5: Pre-Ballet/Tap
Basic ballet and/or tap skills, terminology, rhythm, and coordination are taught, practiced, and developed through creative movement, music. Our pre-ballet and/or pre-ballet/tap classes also develop concentration and learning how to follow instructions. Ballet shoes and Tap shoes required.
Walking through age 2:
Mom N Me
This is a fun class which introduces children to creative movement, while being able to bond with mom (or dad, or grandma...whoever!) A lot of interactive songs and movements are utilized. Great intro to dance for the little ones!
