Today is Dance Day! Your tiny hip hopper steps into the sun-lit Cantril School for their first Hip Hop 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 Wheels on the Bus! Picture your preschooler pretending to be drive a bus over a bumpy road as they sway side to side. The doors go open and shut as they expand and contract their bodies. They find laying on the floor swishing their legs to be most enjoyable as laughter fills the room.

Next, the Dance Edventure truly begins. Your child and their friends explore dance through a story-based activity. They circle their arms round and round like the wheels on the bus, hold a hula hoop as they march around the circle pretending to drive the bus and jump up and down as the bus hits a bumpy road!

The excitement continues with a themed obstacle course. Dancers pretend to drive their bus down different shaped roads. Kicking down a straight road, marching down a zig zag road and crawling down a curvy road! Red, yellow and green dots require a static freeze!

As the class nears its end, your preschooler chooses a movement prompt from flashcards, moving and dancing creatively. Dance fast like a school bus driving down a hill, now dance slow like the school bus traveling up a hill, now freeze as your school bus comes to a stop! 

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 wheels on the bus 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.

Imagine a hip hop dance class where little ones aged 3 to 5 groove into the world of urban beats and funky moves for the first time. In Hip Hop Exploration, we introduce hip hop dance through imaginative play-based adventures, guided by the dynamic Dance to Learn® Curriculum. From lively warm-ups to story-driven skill exploration and an imaginative obstacle course that weaves together a new themed story each class, every step is an adventure in creativity and growth. As the class concludes with a free dance exploration, children express themselves freely, fueled by their imaginations and the infectious rhythm of hip hop.
