In STAGES’ 39th year of operation we look forward to continuing our tradition of providing dancers of all ages and levels of experience with a non-competitive atmosphere in which to learn about the performing arts and about themselves.
DAYTIME PRESCHOOL CLASSES 2019
Whether this is your first time with us or you are continuing, you’ll find that we adjust the pace to meet the challenges and development needs of the age groups. Each class is aimed to delight and explore new movement for your child in a fun filled music and dance class.
Kim Breiland and her young students
TUMBLING LITTLES 2-4 years old 10:00 – 10:45am on Tuesdays
Parent or caregiver participation is required. In this class, along with a focus on basic dance movements, acrobatic movements geared to the very beginner little ones will be explored. Music for this class will include children’s favorites from Disney, Winnie the Pooh, the Wiggles and more.
BALLET & JAZZ 3-5 years old 10:45 – 11:30am on Tuesdays and 1:00 -1:45 pm on Wednesdays
The class is a combination of ballet and jazz that gives dancers a strong foundation of dance technique in both styles. In both the ballet and jazz segment of each class dancers will also learn how to combine basic steps from both dance styles into choreography.
JAZZ & HIP HOP 3-5 years old 1:00 – 1:45pm on Tuesdays and 10:00 – 10:45 on Wednesdays
The class is a combination of jazz and hip hop that gives dancers a strong foundation of dance technique in both styles. In both the jazz and hip hop segment of each class dancers will also learn how to combine basic steps from both dance styles into choreography
BALLET & TAP 3-5 years old 10:45 – 11:30am on Wednesdays and 1:00 – 1:45 on Thursdays
LITTLE DANCERS 18-36 months old 10:00 – 10:45 am on Thursdays
Parent or caregiver participation is required. Taught to popular children’s music such as the Wiggles, Raffi, Winnie the Pooh, etc., this fun filled multi-sensory class will expand on your child’s movement vocabulary, enhance brain development and enrich their imagination.
BALLET & MUSICAL THEATRE 3-5 years old 10:45 – 11:30am on Thursdays
The class is a combination of ballet and musical theatre that gives dancers a strong foundation in both styles. The class will be taught to classical and popular children’s music such as High 5, The Wiggles, Frozen, Little Mermaid and Thumbelina. We will also incorporate scarves, ribbons, crowns, and more into this class.
Movement is the way in which children first express themselves – their feelings, their joy to be alive. We encourage students to build self-confidence through explorations of rhythm, music and movement. Their coordination and balance is developed through fun activities that introduce diverse ways of moving.
Research continues to show that by introducing preschool children to the visual and performing arts, they will be more likely to develop the necessary critical thinking and communication skills for a lifetime of learning.
