The Junior Training Program is an exciting program for children ages 3-7 who enter Preschool to Grade One in September of their year of registration.
Children at this age are encouraged through classes involving creative movement, conditioning, ballet, jazz, hip-hop and arts and crafts to develop coordination, musicality, athleticism and a sense of grace.
Dancers are introduced to the fundamental skills of dance while falling in love with the art form through engaging the imagination.
MULTIPLE CLASS PASSES AVAILABLE!
The main focus of Pre-Dance is to inspire the children’s love of dance. This class is designed to ignite the imagination while developing musicality and spatial awareness. The dancers will be beginning to work on the flexibility and coordination needed for future dance classes and will learn class etiquette, structure and expectations. Children are also developing their ability to remain focused and engaged while paying attention to detail, which helps them in all areas of learning. The skills developed in this class will allow them to move easily into the Junior curriculum.
Ballet classes at the Junior level further develop the musicality and coordination skills laid down on a fundamental level during Pre-Dance. At this age we continue to focus on igniting the imagination and inspiring passion in the dancer while developing the ideal facility for dance. Dancers are expected to have a heightened ability to remain focused and demonstrate class etiquette with pride. This class not only develops the athleticism, creativity and etiquette of a dancer but also begins the development of elegance and grace.
This class develops a heightened level of athleticism and coordination. Focusing on Jumping and Turning, Jazz fast tracks the skill set of the dancer allowing them to master the skills that will be required of them later on in other classes. Jazz is an upbeat fun class that children always look forward to.
Arts and Crafts
Create a full day by pairing a dance class with a fun Arts and Crafts Class!
Experts say Arts and Crafts are the most important way to help child development in ages 3-8. For this reason we offer our Junior Division students weekly Arts and Crafts Classes which develop Motor Skills, Math Concepts, Creativity and Self Esteem.
Hip hop dance is a range of street dance styles primarily performed to hip hop music or that have evolved as part of hip hop culture. Hip Hop dance encourages children sense of musicality, improves memory and increases confidence.
