Pre-Combo Ages 3-4, 45 minute class, part ballet and part tap The primary goal of this class is to foster a love of dance and movement. Students do learn correct terminology and steps for basic ballet and tap. The creative component is also quite large. For example, scarves and other props are used to facilitate the dancer's own physical expression. A dancing narrative helps children to understand that dancing is a form of expression and a means of communicating feelings and actions. Many activities are set up a as game or make believe to enable the children to learn and have fun. Classical and children's music is used.
