Students are introduced to movement and music through the wonderful world of ballet. Scarves, ribbons, and tutus are among the props used to turn students into imaginary butterflies, fairies, princesses, and rainbows. Physical skills such as gross motor skills, strength, balance, and flexibility are developed along with the social skills of taking turns, following directions, and respecting other students. Most of all, the students learn the joy of dance!
Creative rhythms introduces the students to movement, music and tempo through tap dance. Children wear tap shoes and learn musical cadences, accents and patterns while keeping the beat with their feet. As in creative ballet, children first find their love of movement and then may have the desire to move into the mainstream tap curriculum.
