Activities include stretching exercises, learning simple dances, free dancing with scarves and playing games that teach social skills. Both tap shoes and ballet shoes are required for this class. Shoes are available at D’Lynnes Dancewear, 1850 4th Street in San Rafael.
Kindergarten Ballet Ages 5- 6 Years Old
Children have fun as they tap, stretch, leap and dance to a variety of music. This class builds on the concepts introduced to young dancers in Ballet and Tap for Four and Five Year Olds. They learn basic ballet foot and arm positions and simple choreography. In the tap portion of the class dancers follow the beat of the music as they practice their shuffles or pretend to be animals. At the end of each class children have an opportunity for creative expression as they dance freely with scarves. Dancers should wear simple leotards with tights and will need both tap and ballet slippers. Shoes are available at: payless shoes, D'Lynnes Dancewear in downtown San Rafael or online at www.discountdance.com. Children must be the minimum age by the first day of class.
