Early Dance Division (ages 2-5)
Adult accompanied creative movement class for 2 to 3 year olds. Movement, music and storytelling are used to develop body awareness, discover creative expression, and explore the basic principals of dance while using props and musical instruments. Adult participant may be a parent, guardian, grandparent, nanny or sitter and should wear clothing that allows comfortable movement.
For young dancers ages 3 to 4 years old. The Little Dancer Class is designed as a program to address a child’s developmental needs and create a fun dance experience. Each session starts with activities such as bending, stretching and moving and progresses to loco-motor movements including marching, galloping and jumping. Children also focus on learning to follow directions and dance as part of a group. Individual expression and creativity is encouraged as each child learns to use their body.
MYB’s Creative Movement classes are designed specifically for the early development of physical motion, rhythm, and coordination of 4 and 5 year olds. Children are guided through exercises and begin to develop a sense of poise and confidence. At the same time, they are encouraged to explore their own creative expression of music and dance movement. The use of props such as scarves, fans and balls makes this a fun and playful experience while introducing the children to the social skills of group dynamics, self-control and listening.
