Dance Exploration’s Creative Dance class is a preschooler’s introduction to dance and movement. Preschoolers are invited to dance, learn and grow in a positive, nurturing environment lead by a friendly and knowledgeable instructor. Classes begin with imaginative warms up and stretches that allow the child to interact, imagine and play with their instructor and peers. Next dancers explore the daily theme or concept with a standing movement activity that stimulates and strengthens their gross motor development. This play based exploration also stimulates their brain pathways as they continue the discovery of new concepts and principles through movement. Students get to practice and perfect individual dance movements during the Developing Skills part of class. Once perfected, they get to link all the movements together to tell a story! We call this the Story Dance Pathway. This an interactive, play based obstacle course that challenges the dancers to remember each movement in the sequence. This important skill teaches the basis of choreography. Dancers in the Dance Exploration Creative Dance classes grow emotionally and socially as they interact, entertain and enjoy dancing and playing with their peers. We can’t wait to welcome your child into the Dance Exploration Family!
