Dance students rotate between Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Creative Movement/Voice/Acting. One style per week. Each style ignites a different feeling within our students but focuses on developing the same gross motor skills (Gallop, Skip, Hop, Spring, Jump) and fine motor skills (Finger Play, Left and Right coordination and Cross Body Brain Stimulation). Skills are taught as a primer for all higher level classes offered at The Loft, into which the child graduates at the age of five or six.

Class Structure

Through creative, relevant ideas and developmentally age appropriate exercises the preschool performing arts student is drawn into a world of imagination and storytelling, making sense of their intrinsic desire to express, play, move and learn.

-Ballet introduces french vocabulary and the basic primary techniques of classical dance; Plie,Tendu, Chase, Saute, Temps Leve and Port De Bras. Movement quality focuses on grace, poise and control.

-Jazz introduces body isolation, limbering, fitness and the basic jazz fundamentals; Kick, Spin, Leap, Floor Work, and Combination Steps. Movement quality focuses on strength, power and force.

-Tap introduces rhythm, rhythmical phrasing and a primary tap vocabulary; Toe Tap, Heel Beat, Shuffle, Stamp, Step and Ball Change. Movement quality focuses on clarity of sound, tone and balance.

-Creative Movement/Voice/Acting introduces the three elements of dance; Space, Time and Energy. Through the use of high quality children's literature the children dance, sing and act out the stories. Thoughts and feelings are discussed and offer the child a chance to explore the characters, plots and outcomes. The emphasis of these classes are on creativity, problem solving and social skills.
