PRESCHOOL TAP/TUMBLING & BALLET
These classes are designed to capture and promote young children’s instinctive joy of movement and freedom of expression. They will learn early how music, movement, dance, and imagination can be combined to tell a story and convey emotion. The class is structured to aid children’s physical development, coordination, spatial awareness, sensory development, creativity, and self- expression. Both classes are a fun introduction to tap dancing and ballet using themes and stories to introduce tempo, rhythm, beats, patterns, terms, and steps.
