Philosophy

The Little Dance Project's goal is to provide your child with a positive and fun learning experience while nurturing a lifetime of dance appreciation.  Each class is artfully designed with a balance of emphasizing each child's strengths and challenging them to try new skills.

A love of dance is fostered through creative instruction and a constant change of themes for each class. Your little dancer will discover joy and freedom in movement, improve sensory awareness, coordination, body awareness, spatial relations and social skills.

To encourage performance techniques, the preschool classes hold a recital complete with costumes at your child's school for parents and friends. The casual setting rewards dancers for their hard work all year without the stresses of a “big” stage and bright lights.

 

Curriculum

The Little Dance Project's classes brighten a child's school day by waking the brain and body up with upbeat and educational dance movement.

Every class is designed to build critical and creative thinking skills, enhance self-expression and introduce social-emotional skills such as patience, taking turns, risk taking and sharing. No class is the same and every week there is a new theme of focus, such as partnering, counting, fairy tales, superheroes, balance, and more! To enhance this thematic experience each child will have the opportunity to explore multi-sensory props to bring their imagination to life.

While each class is centered around creativity and fun, the little dancers will be taught life skills! Every class has an objective of teaching one of the below skills:

Determination
Motivation
Problem Solving
Critical Thinking
Peer Relations
Team Work

Spatial Awareness

Resilience

Balance

Patience

Encouraging and Supporting Peers
