The program is designed for girls and boys from 2 to 6 years and covers jazz, tap and hip hop. The whole program is designed with a focus on making it appealing to both girls and boys. Preschoolers can relate to the song themes which are not gender specific and have key instructions for preschoolers to respond to. There are different levels and variations within the framework of our classes which cater for a two year old just starting their dance journey or a five year old getting ready for big school.
OUR CLASSES ARE HELD IN DANCE STUDIOS THAT CATER FOR ALL AGES
This means your child will not only be on the right path for their dancing journey but they will also make friendships that often last right through to adulthood. With so much uncertainty surrounding the school transition year, it’s nice to know that you don’t have to change dance studios. Dance Together Friends Forever!
WHAT TO EXPECT IN OUR READY SET DANCE CLASSES
Ready Set Dance is an hour combo class of jazz, tap, singing and hip hop. Students will start with a seated group exercise to introduce all students calmly into the class, this is essential especially for the quieter child or the child trialing and entering a new environment for the very first time! The children then do a range of dance steps such as skipping, hopping, marching and galloping. All of these elements are set with cheerful music and some even have props which the students love! The students are also introduced to music in terms of basic rhythms and timing and the class is structured with students required to follow instructions such as, let's make a circle or, line up in a straight line and pop your hand up if you have an answer, all of which are a fantastic building block and development for students beginning kindergarten/prep.
Students then participate in the hip hop portion of the class which they absolutely love as well as the singing and finally tap where they get to wear their "stompy" shoes.
All teachers are highly qualified and have a wealth of knowledge and experience in teaching pre school aged students and are there to guide and nurture your child through their dance journey.
Regular and sustained participation in Ready Set Dance classes help children to develop their confidence as they try new things, practice and consolidate existing skills and experience success and mastery all while learning the fundamentals of dance and having fun in a positive and nurturing environment!
