Dance With Me
Dance with Me classes are available to students who are 18 months of age to 3 years, along with an accompanying adult who would love to dance with them! The use of props along with children’s songs encourages fine motor coordination and gross motor skills while offering a fun experience for all.
Class Meets During the School Year
Our preschool/kindergarten ballet classes offer pre-reading skills through imagery and musicality. Class size is limited for the weekly, hour-long session, and the students must be 3 years of age to join the program. The instructor’s philosophy encourages positive learning and her knowledge helps the young child mature and gain self-confidence while having fun and being physically active. The studio is equipped with viewing windows, and a bathroom right in the studio. The children are always supervised, with a Teacher Assistant accompanying the instructor at all times. Parents are encouraged to review their child’s progress during “viewing” sessions, and our little darlings are the delight of the annual recital held at Governors State University at the end of the school year.
Preschool & Kindergarten Program
Our children’s program is age appropriate and ballet based. The class content focuses on movements complementary to the dancer’s abilities and interests. This program is geared towards 1st through 5th graders to prepare them for the intensive or recreational programs. At this age they are predominantly grouped into classes based on their age. The program also includes introductions to tap, jazz and modern.
