Children's Division

Children’s Division classes, which include Pre-Primary through Primary Level 3 and Kid Aerial Exploration, have an open enrollment policy. The emphasis in these courses is on rhythm, dynamics, and placement, so that students graduate from Primary and Exploration classes with an understanding of spatial awareness, correct alignment, teamwork, and focus.

Concepts and Goals

Primary Levels 1-3: Stand in poised manner at beginning & end of every exercise, if wearing a skirt hold skirt or place hands on shoulders or waist or down and rounded, demonstrate understanding of special instructions, awareness of spacing relative to other students, perform movement to defined musical phrase, dance musically & rhythmically.
