PRESCHOOL DANCE

Preschool Dance is the beginning of a lifetime of dance appreciation. It is the essence of using imagination and exploration as building blocks for a dance foundation. Students focus on gross motor skills – skipping, hopping and jumping – through musicality and movement. City Ballet pays special attention to the needs and abilities of preschoolers by using theme-based lesson plans full of meaningful play. To encourage performance techniques, the preschool classes hold a recital complete with costumes at the studio for parents and friends. The casual setting rewards dancers for their hard work all year without the stresses of a “big” stage and rehearsals.

Preschool Dance: Children dance and stretch with an appreciation of moving with music. Ballet exercises are introduced along with other techniques. Emphasis on good posture, rhythm, and creative work lead to an in-studio recital in the Fall and the Spring.

Creative Movement: Dancers will explore the basics of movement using a variety of techniques. Class will include basic technique with emphasis on muscle control and strength, stretching, and large motor movements such as jumping,. Dancers will participate in improvisations with prompts from a variety of sources including nature, books, and music.
