Creative Movement Maryland Stageworkz

 
PRE-DANCE CLASSES
 
Taught by our Magical Miss Heather, Pre-Dance classes are the perfect introduction to the world of dance for our littlest studio members! During these classes, your child will explore not only ballet but several styles of dance while they work on the foundational skills all dancers need such as balance, agility, rhythm, and expression. Miss Heather has a background in musical theatre and dance and many years of experience as a performer, educator, and choreographer. She approaches her work with her youngest students with gentleness and excitement at the same time. Her classes are laid back but focused and intentional and she always has a fun prop or song to keep her little dancers motivated!
 
Pre-Dance classes do not perform on the Spring Recital, instead focusing on building skills. Pre-Dance students will, however, have opportunities to perform informally in the studio for their parents and older students! This is always a wonderful way to celebrate everything they've been learning. These classes are a perfect first dance experience!

Ballet

Ballet is the foundation of western dance. Ballet helps dancers focus on alignment, strength, balance, flexibility, proper placement, and body control while simultaneously teaching them about discipline and dedication. A knowledge of ballet can also make learning other types of dances easier and even allow dancers to excel in other forms of dance.
