The fall semester runs from Sept. 18—Dec. 20. Pre-ballet and Creative Movement dance class is an activity-oriented and interactive dance class where children find fun in learning the correlation between music and movement. Our professional dance instructors use engaging techniques including imagery, pantomime, props, games and obstacle courses to help each child explore ballet, funk, hip-hop and tap dance styles. Within a differentiated learning atmosphere, each class builds upon a routine schedule. As children progress, basic dance positions and movements are introduced. Parents may sign-up via our website or contact us to schedule a trial class, no commitment necessary. Join our Dance Artistry today! Please visit our website, adkdancearts.com for more information.
