GIVE YOUR CHILD THE MAGIC OF DANCE
Our Ready Set Dance and Ready Set Ballet classes are designed to give boys and girls confidence, coordination and creativity in a safe, professional environment. With a major emphasis on FUN, our classes will be the highlight of your child’s week.
Ready Set Dance
Jazz, hip hop, singing, music and tap combo class... the perfect way to start developing the co-ordination skills that are the basics of dance classes. The JAZZ component of the class teaches preschoolers important developmental milestones like skipping, cross co-ordination and sequencing.
There is no denying that preschoolers these days are cool. They love to bust out HIP HOP moves. Ready Set Dance have developed their very own hip hop songs like the ‘Ice Cream Freeze’ and ‘Hip Hop Italiano’ that our dancers absolutely love learning.
The MUSIC section has a strong emphasis on counting music, understanding tempo and exploring rhythm. We love to use musical instruments and parachutes to have fun learning music as a team. Each lesson involves SINGING time on the microphone. Our little divas and rock stars just love to take their turn on their microphone it’s very rewarding to see some of our shy students gradually gain confidence and sing individually on the microphone and introduce themselves to the class.
And TAP – (performed with jazz shoes at NBSOD) includes songs like the ‘Gumboot Splash’, ‘Jungle Bug Squish’ and the ‘Penguin Parade’ fun exercises that teach us how to use our heels, toes and to learn how to shuffle. All these ingredients together create a super hour of fun!
Ready Set Ballet
A a 30 minute magical ballet experience for Preschoolers. Our experienced teachers will lead our little ballet dancers through each step of the class as they learn the fundamentals of ballet. READY SET BALLET music has been specifically designed to capture the beauty of classical ballet in a way that engages preschoolers from the first warm up to the final bow. Our dancers love swimming with mermaids, twirling their ribbon sticks, flying with feathers and riding the tutu train to story book lane.
