Today is Dance Day! Your tiny dancer steps into the sun-lit Cantril School for their first Dance Exploration class. They are greeted by their instructor with a warm smile and a cheerful “Hello!” The bright studio is filled with friendly faces and toys, making your little one feel at ease.


The class begins with an imaginative warm-up in a circle where children interact with the instructor. Today’s theme is the Garden! Picture your preschooler pretending to be a butterfly, flapping their wings, stretching their arms to the sky, and bending low like a caterpillar. The room is filled with giggles and joy.

Next, the Dance Edventure truly begins. Your child and their friends explore dance through a story-based activity. They make caterpillars with their toes, twirl like cocoons, jump energetically, and fly with colorful scarves as butterfly wings. This blend of dance skills and storytelling helps them learn about dance and the world around them.

The excitement continues with a themed obstacle course. Dancers crawl through tunnels like caterpillars, step on caterpillar-shaped stones, twirl with ribbons to form cocoons, and jump over cones like emerging butterflies. They fly from one balance dome to another, mimicking butterflies in a garden.

As the class nears its end, your preschooler chooses a movement prompt from flashcards, moving and dancing creatively. They curl up like seeds, grow into flowers, dance out a rainstorm, and buzz like bees with their friends.

Finally, the class gathers in a closing circle. The instructor leads a cool-down routine, and children share their favorite part of the day. They receive a butterfly chrysalis coloring page to take home. With a final cheer and high-five, the class ends, and your child leaves with a smile, ready to share their dance adventure with you.
