Pre-K Dance

AGES 2.5 - 5

 

Pre-K dance classes are the ideal starting point for young children to begin their dance journey, developing agility, coordination, and a love for movement. Historically, dance has played a crucial role in early childhood education, promoting physical fitness and creative expression. At The School of Dance, we offer a comprehensive curriculum that not only focuses on dance techniques but also teaches the historical context of various dance genres. Our mission is to provide a supportive environment where children can explore their passion for dance without the pressures of competition.

 

Our pre-k program begins with Tiny Toes, introducing basic dance movements, acrobatics, and balance. As children advance, they join Little Dancers, which builds on the basics and enhances their agility and coordination. Dance Explorers is the next step, incorporating musicality and hip hop elements to broaden their dance education. We also offer Breaking Tots, focusing on the basics of break dancing to develop strength and rhythm. Each class aims to provide a well-rounded dance education, ensuring students learn to dance and appreciate the rich history and cultural significance of the art.
