Preschool Class Descriptions

All Preschool Classes perform 1 routine in the recital, with the exception of Pre-Dance II (which performs 2 routines). 

Pre-Dance: A beginner tap & ballet combo class that integrates Creative Movement in a more structured classroom environment. Pre-Dance focuses on dance vocabulary, basic steps and correct form through 20 minutes of tap and 20 minutes of ballet. 
Pre-Ballet: Introduces the young dancer to ballet through the stories and songs of the great ballets and creative music. Dancers will learn beginner ballet terminology & technique.
Pre-Acro: Using the AcroDance Pre-School curriculum, we teach physical and social-emotional literacy to our youngest dancers. Song, dance, story telling, play and games keep little ones on task and having fun while mastering important milestones.
Pre-Dance II: A tap & ballet combo class that continues teaching Pre-Dance fundamentals at a faster pace. Pre-Dance II introduces basic jazz steps and begins to incorporate combinations and advance on age appropriate skills. *This class performs 2 routines in the recital.
Pre-Ballet II: A continuation of teaching Pre-Ballet fundamentals at a faster pace. Pre-Ballet II expands on ballet terminology and technique and begins to incorporate combinations and advance on age appropriate skills.
Hippity Hop: Bounce along to the beat in this intro hip-hop class for kids. A great add-on to a traditional class and way to introduce a jazz-funk style to your young dancer!
Broadway Babies: An introduction to musical theater for young dancers. Broadway Babies will sing, dance and act to broadway/movie hits while learning basic ballet and jazz steps.
Acro – Add on: This 15 minute add-on class is the perfect addition if your dancer is looking to improve on executing skills, progressing in strength, and grow confidence in their acro skills! *This class is intended for dancers ages 3-6 who take a class either before OR after the class time.
