Dance Exploration at the Castle Rock Community Recreation Center is a Recreational, Non-Competitive dance program for children ages 18 months to 12. Our program is designed for beginning to intermediate skilled dancers who have never danced before or have had very little dance training in the past. We follow the teaching methodology of the Dance to Learn® Curriculum. Dance to Learn® is designed with the whole child in mind to ensure that they dance, learn and grow at each stage of their dance training. Each class provides our students with an educational, engaging and enriching opportunity to explore a monthly theme, examine a weekly concept and exhibit technical skills in the dance genre they are learning.
Our Mission at Dance Exploration is to develop the EXCEPTIONAL Child through dance education.
We 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:
