Why choose us? We are here to motivate young minds and develop happy and healthy dancers. Our positive faculty develops students that are confident and well disciplined. We are a place where you will feel at home and each dancer will build friendships that will last a lifetime!
A student should learn more than just steps in a dance lesson. Your child’s dance class should:
- Stimulate their creative side and teach the value of self-expression
- Build self-esteem and confidence in his/her body
- Begin a life long appreciation for music, dance and the arts
- MOST IMPORTANTLY, your child’s dance class should engage them in an activity that is healthy, active and FUN!
Dance, like anything new requires time and concentrated effort to develop. In today’s fast paced world, it is becoming more and more difficult to keep children engaged in activities that don’t involve instant gratification. Dance Theatre South believes in teaching children that hard work and persistence can be fun, and that is the approach we take in all of our Children’s classes. Our goal is to help everyone fall in love with dance in a way that is new and exciting. We know that once a child is hooked on dance, they willingly embrace self-discipline and focus on all other activities with enthusiasm. Great care has been given to our program and Dance Theatre South is constantly updating and creating new ideas to engage our students. When your child takes classes at Dance Theatre South, you can be sure that he or she is developing a strong foundation in dance basics even if it feels like we are simply having fun!
Offered to children 4-5 years old, or those who will be four years old by December. This class meets for 45 minutes. Children will learn basic dance steps, as well as how to take turns, count music, take direction from a teacher, and participate in a specialized classroom setting. One of the goals of this class is for the child to begin to gain independence and self-confidence. These students will perform a tap and ballet dance in our recital.
