"Conceptual teaching of any subject is more meaningful (and therefore develops deeper learning and better memory) than simply teaching facts. (...) To truly understand dance and be able to create, perform, and respond to it, a dancer must learn and explore dance concepts." -Anne Green Gilbert
This class is designed for our youngest dancers and uses conceptual teaching. Dancers that love to move and be creative will love this class. Caregiver participation is required as this class eases the transition into our classes that are for the child only. Children will learn to dance in a playful and imaginative environment with their caregiver helping encourage them. In this class, children develop locomotor skills, rhythm, beats and time, following directions, and begin to learn structure. This class is kept small to ensure individual attention is given with care and encouragement to each student. Boppin' Tots meet once a week.
