The studio is a-buzz with the addition of dance to our offered classes, beginning Sept 1st 2015. We will start out by offering Ballet classes but are looking forward to expanding to all forms of dance throughout the year.
The curriculum taught in these classes is titled Leap N’ Learn. Leap N’ Learn is an effective, progressive, and world-renowned dance program designed by master dance instructors and child psychologists. The program is designed for children between the ages of 3-12 and is broken up into specific tiers based on age and student experience. The syllabus incorporates the fundamentals of ballet while encouraging a healthy imagination in a positive and fun environment. We limit enrollment to twelve students per class. Your child will be enrolled into a class with one main instructor as well as an assistant teacher; ensuring ample attention is paid to each student. Each class will be forty-five minutes long and meet once a week.
The first tier of the Leap N’ Learn program is our Early Childhood Dance class geared towards children three to seven years of age; broken down into two separate age groups of three to five years and six to seven years. After that we go into our Ballet classes designed for children eight to twelve years of age. Ballet will be broken down into two different groups: Ballet 1 and Ballet 2. Placement will based off of age, experience and skill level.
All of these expertly designed classes share the same basic goals. In each of these classes we aim to supply your child with the basic skills to progress in any form of dance that is of their interest. We will supply your child with the understanding of physical space and how we relate to it as an individual and as a group member in movement, basic ballet form and positions as well as musical awareness and expression. Your child will also be exposed to intellectual concepts such as taking-turns/sharing, imagination, following and leading and of course maintaining a positive attitude!
