Our imaginations run wild with improvisational exercises and the use of props to encourage the development of confidence and body awareness. Each session has a different theme and will touch on different genres each time such as; Jazz, Ballet, Acrobatics, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre. Our goal is to provide the most dynamic dance experience for our students and to delight their senses through the exploration of movement in dance.

Hip Kidz
Ages 4-6

This is an age appropriate urban based class where dancers will bop to the beat of the latest kid hits learning large axis movement and fine motor skills.

IN ADDITION TO DANCE TECHNIQUE OUR PROGRAM GOALS ARE:

  • Creative Expression: Dancers will work on improvising, manipulating rhythm, musicality and develop flexible thinking. Cognitive Competencies: Dancing helps develop a child’s vocabulary of symbolism; sizes, shapes and colours and provides guidance for paying attention until a task is complete.
  • Social Competence: Dancers interact with other, express emotions, practice sharing, taking turns and having and being friends.
  • Health: Refining large motor skills, understanding safety concerns, developing trust in their own capabilities along with the obvious effect on physical fitness are some of the health benefits of dancing.
