Each class meets once per week and includes internationally recognized curriculum with new skills and combinations of skills introduced each week and repeatedly reviewed, added upon and honed throughout the year. Step by step, a solid foundation of technique is steadily built for your child utilizing national and international standards recognized as developmentally appropriate for each age level.
These delightful classes provide a child’s first introduction to music and dance during the critical window of learning opportunity. Each child attends class with a parent or caregiver. Your instructor is a music and dance specialist who has been specially trained in Early Childhood education techniques. Your child will learn introductory dance skills, gain vocabulary, learn physical coordination, colors, shapes, etiquette, social skills and more to ready him or her for optimal learning both artistically and academically. For 3-year-old boys this is great preparation for future Hippety-Hop and other dance classes. Your child will learn musical skills including ear training to recognize major, minor keys and varying modes, pitch matching, rhythmic functioning in varying meters, and verbal development while engaged in singing, movement, and activities with rhythmic instruments. Children will get to perform on a year-end performance showcase and even wear a costume. Toddler class schedules Include Weekday mornings or Wednesday evenings at 6:30 for those little night owls.
