Did you know that 90% of a child’s brain development happens before age 5? New experiences, involving music and movement are all essential activities for developing brain connections.
We teach preschoolers through imagery and play. We reward trying hard as opposed to doing perfectly. We work to build confidence and willingness to explore the music and movement. The games that we play work to build gross and fine motor skills, musicality, self expression and concepts of movement qualities. We also encourage active listening and the ability to work and learn happily in the group setting; all through games and exercises that the children love. Simultaneously, these games help be bring about spacial awareness and depth perception, greater control over their bodies and the ability to relax and be still, and even increased vocabulary and social skills, such as saying please and thank you and being a good partner or teammate. The benefits of dance for the developing human are limitless and amazing to watch.
