Terrific Twos

AGES 2 - 3 It is fabulous to be 2 years old! Two-year-olds are full of enthusiasm, exploration- and growing independence. At this age, they learn to play with other children and will build with blocks. Our dance class will embrace your child’s need for independence while making the best of their developmental benchmarks, with dances that hop, jump, run, and show emotion. Dancers will learn to use ribbons, scarves, and balls to create dances together and on their own. Basic ballet terminology will be introduced as dancers embark on a special dance adventure weekly. Class Length: 30 minutes

While in class, students use music, manipulatives, props, and simple movement activities to develop gross motor skills, musical awareness, as well as social and listening skills.

Dancers begin to learn the elegant style and time honored tradition of the dance of the noble courtiers of King Louis XIV. Through barre, centre and across the floor exercises, children learn the basics of the placement of the body, legs, arms, and head. In class, jumping, turning, and traveling steps are taught and later combined into increasingly complex combinations. As strength, flexibility and technique develop, stability and competence are realized. In upper levels, mastery of style and variations become the focus.
