In this class, children gain an understanding about moving their bodies in different ways with a variety of different activities. We dance, tumble, stretch and explore creativity all while learning to listen, follow directions, and take turns. We also use different props such as wands, ribbons, and bean bags to teach about rhythm, and music. Our 30 minute class is full of fun to keep up with the changing attention of 2 year olds.

This class exposes students to the joy of dance through creative movement, imaginative play, movement games, and singing. The class helps the development of motor skills as well as communication and social skills. We introduce the basics of ballet in Center Barre and work on other skills as we move across the floor. Children enjoy using their imaginations as we learn choreography to different music, and pantomime various animals, actions and situations. We explore locomotion and use various props to further our dance experience.
