*Tiny Tots Pre-Ballet/Creative Dance - This class is designed for ages 2-4 years. Students are introduced to the beginning ballet positions. This class focuses more on Creative Dance to keep the young dancer's attention. Creative dance involves using body actions to communicate an image (a flower blooming) or imaginary play (Cinderella at the stroke of mid-night). It allows them to have fun with dance and allows them to move freely. They also work on developing their motor skills and coordination, channeling their energy, and using their imaginations.
*Pre-Ballet/Creative Dance - This class is designed for ages 4-8 years. Students learn the basic ballet positions and technique. This class focuses more on Pre-ballet and the structure of a classical ballet class. Creative Dance is mixed in the last half of the class to keep the class fun and light for the young dancer. It allows them to have fun with dance, and allows them to move freely, while learning other styles of dance.
*Tap - This class is designed for ages 5-10 years. Students learn basic tap steps at the beginning of class and then work on a choreographed routine the later half of the class. A mini-recital is performed on the final day of the session and a big recital occurs in May.
*Hip Hop - This class is crazy fun for K - 5th grade. The kids are given a chance to express themselves, create their own moves, and learn choreography to popular music for a performance they will present at the end of the session. Classes are held Wednesdays at 3:00 and Thursdays at 1:20 & 2:15 at Sunset Hills Elementary. Next session starts in the fall and all classes will learn dances for the Halloween Carnival. Registration is open in Mid-August at Kidztyme.org.
