A Letter from our Director
Hello Dance Families!
My name is Jessica Strong and I am the Director and Owner of Dance Exploration, LLC.
I have been organizing the Dance Program at the Castle Rock Community Recreation Center since August of 2017. My goal for the program has been to provide an educational, engaging and enriching dance experience for younger children ages 18months to 12. My mission at Dance Exploration is to develop the EXCEPTIONAL Child through dance education.
I believe every child has the ability to grow and develop into EXCEPTIONAL creatures when actively involved in a developmentally appropriate dance education.
Children naturally develop these traits as they grow and develop to become EXCEPTIONAL:
I began developing the Dance to Learn® Curriculum when I first started Dance Exploration in 2009. I wanted a Curriculum that would allow children to explore and examine the world around them. The Curriculum your dancers will experience in the Dance Exploration program at the Castle Rock Rec Center is:
Educational: The Dance to Learn® Curriculum was designed for the developing child. I ensure their entire needs are met cognitively, physically, emotionally, socially and creatively. I follow a themed and conceptual approach to dance education.
Engaging: The Dance to Learn® Curriculum provides a multi-sensory experience to captivate all 4 learning types throughout every class to ensure no child is left behind in their dance education.
Enriching: The Dance to Learn® Curriculum believes in education outside of the classroom as well to create a fully enriched family devoted to their child's dance education.
Essential: The Dance to Learn® Curriculum approach fosters a life long appreciation for dance and movement. My students continue dancing for years to come.
I love to include families every step of the way. Which is why we have the Dance to Learn® at Home program. I share what we are learning in class so you can continue the fun and learning at home with your child and witness first hand what makes Dance Exploration and the Dance to Learn® Curriculum special.
I look forward to you becoming a part of the Dance Exploration Family!
