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.

In light of COVID-19, we will be taking the following steps to ensure our community's health and safety.

Classes will be conducted outside in the open air. All dancers will maintain at minimum 3 feet apart social distancing throughout the entire course. Masks are suggested for all participants over the age of 2, and required for those 3 years of age and up. Jillian will provide hand sanitizer during class. In the confirmation of registration, Jillian will email the list of props for parent-toddler participants to bring. For creative dance, there will sometimes be a "no-touch" obstacle course.

 

While registering, participants must agree to a health check form, which states that any dancer participating has had zero symptoms of COVID-19 and has not been in contact with anyone with the virus for 14 days.

If someone in class contracts COVID-19, all participants from that class will be notified and cannot participate in dance for 14 days. All participants in the COVID-19 positive class will receive a full refund.

 

Please note that classes will follow the CDC's guidelines and are subject to change as new information comes out. If there is a mandatory shut down or a stay-at-home order, all will be refunded.
