Pre-Classes (Ages 4-5)
Our Pre – Class program is designed to help transition Cotton Candy Kids up to full hour classes of one style. The Pre – Classes are combined to make an hour and a half class with each style being 45 minutes. The Dance Factory offers Pre-Acro, Pre-Ballet, Pre-Jazz, Pre-Tap, and Pre-Hip Hop for the combo classes. You choose any two to make the combination you prefer best!
Acrobatics are the dancer’s version of gymnastics. This class brings flexibility, strength training & tumbling together. The Pre-Acro class is designed to help younger generations of students learn the basics of tumbling. They focus on creative walking, jumping, rolling, practicing bridges and baskets.
Both a discipline and an art form, Ballet stands in a class of its own. Ballet requires strength and patience because of its difficult technical elements. Taking years to develop, the Pre-Ballet class helps the younger dancers learn the basic positions of feet and arms. This class helps with balance and grace, as well as listening and learning skills. Ballet is a sound base for any style of dance.
Jazz focuses on increasing flexibility and muscle tone while building musicality and proper technique. The Pre-Jazz class teaches students the basics of stretching, cardio, technique, and choreography. This style is upbeat and fun for dancers between ages 4 and 6.
Pre-Tap is great for these ages because it helps enforce counting music correctly, and building rhythm. With this style, students can build confidence with timing and coordination with their feet. Tap can be performed with or without the accompaniment of music while still showcasing technical skills and entertainment.
Pre-Hip Hop is great for young students with a lot of energy and style. This class studies the instructor’s style, utilizing the beats and rhythms of the music, as well as isolating the different body parts. In the Pre-Class young hip hop dancers learn timing, isolations, and basic hip hop ‘tricks’ used in the hip hop genre.
Classes offered: Starting August of 2017
