DANCE Ages 18 months to 5 years old In our dance classes, children develop focus, coordination, strength and flexibility. Classes focus on teaching natural movement as joyful expressions of thought and feeling. Classes teach dance as consciously structured movement performed with awareness. Dance classes offer young children an avenue to expand movement possibilities and skills. Parents can choose between “Mommy and Me” classes and drop-off classes (parent is not required to be in the classroom). See page 6 for schedule. Theater Ages 4 to 5 years old Our introductory theater classes support social, emotional, and cognitive skills through play filled movement, music, and interactive story telling. By engaging the students, classes encourage development and practice of language skills, problem solving, and self-expression. See page 10 for schedule. MUSIC Ages 3 months to 4 years old This early childhood interactive music program uses a mix of traditional and contemporary songs from around the world, and developmentally appropriate instruments to help bring out the innate musical nature of young children. Children are introduced to musical activities, various languages, development of fine and gross motor skills, and small and large movements that are all intertwined through play. It’s a nurturing environment where children and their caregivers can discover the wonder and joy of music! Parents can choose between “Mommy and me” classes and drop off classes (parent not required to be in classroom). See page 12 for drop off class schedule. mommy and me music SCHEDULE: MONDAY
