My child is three years old which class is the most appropriate?

This is a great question! 3-year-olds motor and development skills can be so different! Caretakers and parents have a much better understanding of your child's development and what works best for them! The parent-toddler class does include 3-year-olds. Below are description of the parent toddler class and creative dance. We understand each child has a different way of learning and succeeding, therefore we are okay with your three year old taking either class, as long as you feel it is a good fit for them!

 

  • Creative Dance for 4-5 yr olds: This class is for dancers independent of their grown-up. Their caretakers will be welcome to watch the class or get coffee during class. The class will focus on a range of techniques, storytelling through movement, and choreography. The class is structured in the following order: beginning with a cardio warm-up, strengthening exercises sitting down, ballet choreography,  storytelling through movement, and choreography to end. 

 

  • Parent toddler 18months -3 yr old: This class is for dancers who are ready to explore music, dancing, and choreography. The use of props will help us learn musical dynamics, movement qualities, balance, and strength. These classes also aim to help dancers achieve fine and gross motor skills.

What are your plans for when it gets colder? 

snowflakes-seamless-pattern-abstract-chr

As one parent put it, we will be having “tutus and winter coats.” We will be dancing outside as long as the weather is clear, we will recommend proper attire for the class as the weather gets colder and will have time changes to some classes to make sure we are dancing in the sunlight. We will also be monitoring the changes in COVID-19 to see when and if, it will be safe to begin classes indoors.
