Learn More - Preschool Ballet/Tap
This fun-filled class of ballet and tap instruction is for 2-4 year olds. The curriculum begins with 30 minutes of ballet, during which dancers learn basic positions, steps, and vocabulary using concepts and terminology that are familiar to them, even if they’ve never danced before. During the second half of the class, the dancers focus on tap, doing a warm-up, technique across the floor, and upbeat combinations.
The 30 minutes of tap teaches dancers rhythm and coordination and incorporates music they know and love! This class is a great way to introduce your child to dance instruction as well as the dynamics of a classroom setting. You’ll be amazed at the vocabulary and technique your dancer will learn, all while having a great time and making new friends!
Some of our PreSchool classes also provide 30 minutes of acrobatics. Dancers will spend the first part of the class working on ballet technique and vocabulary, then move on to tap, and then finish the class with a half-hour of acro instruction to help develop their strength, flexibility, and coordination. It is a fun and exciting class that will inspire and prepare your dancer for a life-long love of dance and acro.
