Our Creative Movement Program is designed specifically for the development  of Pre-schoolers ages 3 and 4. It emphasizes movement and motion, rhythm, coordination skills, proper muscular development, and some Pre-Ballet basics. Use of props such as scarves, balls, lumi sticks, and other items help keep the kids interested and facilitate their skills. Using games, imagery and imagination we teach these young dancers terminology and proper placement. We aim to encourage a lifelong passion for learning through music and movement! The students will be presented in a lecture demonstration in May at the studio for the parents (costumes will be provided).
