A sister-program to our Early Childhood Music classes, the dance classes offered at
The Ridgewood Conservatory are structured to address the different physical and social skills
of each age group - adding more "movement to music" opportunities for our younger students.
Your young dancer will discover that Miss Lisa's classes encourage self-expression in a safe,
non-competitive environment. No glitz, no glamour - just delightful classes!
EARLY CHILDHOOD DANCE CLASSES
Fall '12 Semester: September 8, 2012 - January 26, 2013
Spring '13 Semester: January 28, 2013 - June 15, 2013
Twinkling Stars will learn basic positions of the feet, port de bras or arm movements, as well as simple
jumps on two feet, gallops, skips and gentle stretching. They will also learn to use dance as a way of
telling a story, while learning to relate to musical rhythms. By learning simple pre-ballet movements,
your child will begin to explore movement as a way of self-expression.
50-MINUTE CLASSES: MONDAY 1:00 PM, SATURDAY 9:45AM
Ballet Bunnies will study the various positions of their feet and arms, and will begin to work at the barre.
Plies, piques and passes will be introduced along with the correct terminology for each step.
Children will learn transfer of weight, jumping on one foot, and “spotting.”
Free movement and story-telling through dance will be used to encourage self-expression.
