Preschool & Reception Dance
Preschool & Reception Dance is an introduction to dance that is aimed at students from 1.5 years. These young students are too young for formal dance training, but already have a natural love for dance and movement and they like repetition. In these lessons we do not focus on one dance style yet, but rather experiment with as many forms of movement as possible, including classical ballet, to develop a broad dance base, control and coordination. On the basis of a theme or story, they become acquainted with steps such as walking on their toes, running, jumping, skipping, marching, pony trotting, demi-plié and gallops. The focus for these students is learning to listen to the music, feeling and using all body parts, and telling and experiencing stories with expressive movements.
