Creative Dance (ages 2-5)

This class is for dancers ages 2-5 years old. Multiple classes are offered with various age group offerings throughout the week. The little ones will learn to love dance through a series of fun and expressive dance stories, music and movement activities. At Applause we use a developmentally-appropriate and brain-compatible curriculum that meets dancers where they are and helps them feel successful. Students will also get to practice appropriate group interaction skills such as sharing, listening, and following directions. Each successive class will build upon these skills and will place a greater emphasis on musicality, rhythm, teamwork, self-discipline, and self expression. Creative Dance has its foundations in ballet, however, it prepares dancers for all styles of dance and improves their physical literacy.

Creative Dance & Tap

Our Creative Dance classes are designed for our dancers, ages 5-7, and begin by introducing basic Ballet concepts through games, music, stories, and activities that will help develop gross motor skills, coordination, and rhythm while keeping learning fun. We follow a developmentally appropriate curriculum to provide children with the opportunities to develop in all areas of life. Students will also get to practice appropriate group interaction skills such as sharing, listening, and following directions. Each successive class will build upon these skills and will place a greater emphasis on musicality, rhythm, teamwork, self-discipline, and self expression.

 

Creative Dance & Tap classes are 1 hour long to allow time for both ballet and tap. The addition of tap class is fun and a new challenge for older Creative Dancers.
