At Gotta Dance, our movement-based curriculum is age-appropriate and specifically designed for pre-school students. With professional instruction, we offer fun-filled classes for your little dancers aged 2½ - 5 years old.
We know that dance education at an early age can be a catalyst for further development. Preschoolers develop strength in their large muscle groups and discover the joy and freedom in movement. Our educators work with students to build skills such as balance, motor, and social skills. Each year, your dancer will build on skills learned in previous years in our classes.
We offer preschool dance classes specifically designed for each age group. Each class is used to focus on various age appropriate development activities. Our classes are as follows:
All Fitness Levels, No Experience Required, Expecting Moms Welcome
This easy-to-follow dance class is designed for new moms who are pregnant and want to stay fit through-out pregnancy and new moms and dads of young babies in front carrier.
As a 2 1/2-year-old, your Baby Ballet dancer is curious and blossoming every day. Dancers enter our 30-minute class independently to discover the joy and freedom in movement, improve sensory awareness, eye-body coordination, body awareness, spatial relations, and social skills. Our dance educators provide the respect, tenderness, warmth, and patience that allow these youngest dancers to thrive.
As a 3-year-old, your Rainbow is glowing with achievement every day. We want to help your chil-dren glisten during this period. Their movement and balance are improving and so are their verbal skills. This age group is known for their agility and growing gracefulness. We teach your children intentional movements to strengthen their age appropriate developmental growth.
Unicorns are confident, creative, and imaginative creatures. At the age of 4, your dancers possess all of these qualities and more. With better control over their movements and a growing understanding of con-cepts, we can begin to teach your dancers fundamental dance techniques. These movements combined with a lot of imagination will help dancers develop their growing dance vocabulary.
5-year-olds entering kindergarten are growing more confident day by day. These dancers can choose a combined Ballet/HipHop Jazz or Ballet/Tap class, based on their preferences. Kindergarten opens your dancers up and allows them to shine like the stars they will always be. By this stage, children are more confident and are beginning to move in a more mature manner. We focus on introducing and developing complex movements and dance combinations.
With cognitive and muscle memory further developed, our educators build sequential dance exercises week-to-week. Creative movement is taught and then incorporated into class dances that establish a detail to technique. Your dancer's feet will become more pointed, their posture will straighten, and their recollec-tion of sequential movement will improve.
Performance skills are encouraged through age appropriate song choices and dynamic dance routines. The social and inquisitive nature of kindergarteners is nurtured through instruction and partner activities. The Stars class offers a fun, fit, and focused experience that completely engages your dancer's mind, heart, and body. Classes are 45 minutes and offered after school on weekdays or Saturday mornings at each of our locations.
