Pre-Jazz for Grades 1-4

Pre-Jazz is an excellent and fun introduction to dance. It introduces students to basic shapes, position, and postures of jazz dancing. Pre-jazz enhances cognitive and physical development and uses fine and gross motor skills while developing strength and coordination.

Classes are held in Lacordaire Hall.

Tuesday, October 4-December 6th Time: 3:30-4:30

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten
Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Creative Movement

The class is taught by Amber Hemmer

From AHA! Dance in Cedar Grove.

Dance explores the body in motion. Students will explore the basic elements of Creative Movement, Ballet, and Jazz. Guided movement develops awareness of body control through motion, listening for cues, and respecting others in a shared space. Classes include tap, ballet, creative movement, props, songs, and games. Students should wear sneakers and comfortable clothes.

Classes are held in Lacordaire Hall.
