Pre-school and Kindergarten Dance Class Schedule and Information
SNAP believes pre-school dance will enrich the lives of all children. Our program is designed to accommodate the needs of every child, during the students’ most formative years. Dance class will enhance your child’s life by re-enforcing his/her listening skills, establish manners, aid in his/her ability to follow directions, introduce rhythm and musicality, increase body awareness, enhance gross motor skills and spatial awareness, and especially, by encouraging his/her imagination to take him/her to new places!
At SNAP, we will pre-register your child for priority registration from session to session from September-June. This ensures your spot once you have enrolled, for maximum benefit. If you need to drop after a session or make a change, please call or email us.
How to choose the right class for your child:
2-3 years old (Baby Ballet): Gross motor skill development begins here. Students will work on listening skills, work with props, listen and dance to directive songs, practice gallops, marches, walks on tip toes, twirling, sing songs, and most of all, use their imaginations to create, within a safe and warm environment. This is an adult-accompanied class.
3-4 years old (Story Ballet): Gross motor skill development continues in this age range. This age group will work on listening skills/following directions, pointing/flexing their feet, gross motor skills, imaginative play, listen to a story and act it out, use props, and learn very basic ballet terminology. This is an on-my-own class.
4-5 years old (Pre-school Ballet or Pre-school Tap): Dancers begin to widen their vocabulary of ballet/tap steps and positions, continue to work on gross motor and beginning fine motor skills, port de bras, classroom behavioral expectations, beginning musicality, and will participate in their first recital if enrolled through recital season.
5-6 years old (Kindergarten Ballet, Kindergarten Tap, or Kindergarten Jazz): Kindergartners will continue to grow as dancers by learning more steps in this level. This is our first year for Jazz class for any dancer. Many children pair Ballet and Tap for more comprehensive training.
MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT SNAP
Please review our Covid safety rules (until everyone can be vaccinated). Masks are required for all dancers and adults in the building. Should your dancer feel ill in any way, or a member of your household is ill, or you are returning from a state that has been mandated for a quarantine, your dancer should participate virtually from home until everyone is feeling better. All students and staff within the building will be in masks for the duration. By registering for class, you acknowledge and agree that there will be no-refunds issued, even if the class is forced online for the remainder of the session.
