About the Program…
Children’s Creative Dance Club strives to provide the very best quality of dance training with a modern approach. We enable students to discover and develop their own talents and interests in dance, and class size is limited to ensure individual attention. Our program fosters positive body image and self-esteem.
The curriculum and syllabus were designed by Ms. Easterling-Freifelder. All students in our classes learn body-space awareness, musicality, master locomotor and non-locomotor skills, gain physical confidence, and explore the use of time, space, and energy in dance. In addition, all young children’s classes incorporate a play time that emphasizes developing imaginative skills. Some of the many benefits of ballet include proper body alignment, good posture, exercise, balance, muscle tone, strength, musical awareness, and focus.
Above all, we love the art and craft of dance, and are committed to instilling this joy and knowledge in our students.
Young Children’s Ballet Classes: This class introduces the student to age-appropriate ballet technique, musicality, and vocabulary. “Story Time” is incorporated into each class where students are introduced to the history of ballet and to the stories and music of the great classical ballets, following musical exercises from the book, Discovering Ballet: A Guide for Teachers of Young Children, written by Ms. Easterling-Freifelder. A demonstration is presented at the end of the first term, and a performance is given in the Spring.
Ballet Classes: The training places great emphasis on clean ballet technique, proper alignment, and musicality. There is also a strong focus on development of strength and precision. Classes incorporate classical technique with a contemporary approach.
