Description:        ​High energy and lots of fun mark this creative movement type class which captivates preschoolers’ interest as their attention span grows. Children learn greater focus as their teacher guides them with imaginative 'play' through age appropriate dance technique, particularly gross motor skills and rhythm awareness. This combination class introduces young students to dance terminology, valuable social skills, increased flexibility, and coordination. These young dancers are the "hit" of the annual dance recital performing two dances, a ballet and a tap.
