What do we offer for Kindergarten?
We are super excited to launch our NEW + IMPROVED TWIRL program for 2016-2017 Season!
TWIRL is our exclusive Pre-School and Kinder Program created by Becca and Dani (along with the staff) especially for Rhythm! It's is a fun + fanciful approach to dance class! This program helps your little one learn age appropriate dance steps and proper terminology in a creative and fun environment!
Our dancers will receive a reward ribbon or fun tag to keep on their dance bag and also receive a TWIRL Graduation Certificate at the end of the season! All TWIRL Classic and TWIRL TO THE MAX dancers will receive a custom workbook with fun activities to do in class, and our TWIRL Fairytale Ballet, Snazzy Jazzy, and Hip Hop Flip Flop dancers will receive snazzy handouts through the season to help learn terminology and fun activities!
For our Kinder-dancers, we provide an introduction to dance in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. These classes have a little more structure, terminology, and complexity that caters to our 5 turning 6 year old dancers. We offer several styles and classes for this age group.
Many kids this age can handle more than one class a week, so check out all the options we have for our Kindergarteners!
TWIRL Classic: This is our Kinder Combo class we have offered at Rhythm Dance Center for 21 years! It is a classic and traditional intro and approach to dance! Your dancer will be introduced to Ballet and Tap basics and have an excellent dance foundation for your dancer as they get older! We highly recommend this class for all young dancers. Dancers in TWIRL Classic will need tap shoes, ballet shoes, and a dance bag for class. They will perform a tap routine in the year end show.
FAIRYTALE BALLET: This is a ballet class combined with creative movement. Fairytale Ballet will be based on favorite fairytales and stories and the class will revolve around these the entire season. There will be dress up, magic wands, crowns, and more! This is for little ones that love princesses and have a vivid imagination! They will perform a story driven ballet and creative movement piece in the year end show.
HIP HOP FLIP FLOP: Do you have a dancer that never stops moving? This class is for those high energy, sassy little ones that are always ready to show off their new dance moves! It will combine high energy hip hop basics (only age appropriate music and movement – we promise!) with basic acrobatic and tumbling skills. This will be a fast paced, fun class! Dancers will need to wear loose fitting, comfy clothes and sneakers for the hip hop portion, and a leotard, unitard, jazz shorts underneath for the tumbling portion. They will perform a hip hop routine in the year end show.
KINDERJAZZ: This class is a super fun and snazzy intro to Jazz for our kindergarteners. If your dancer loves to dance to upbeat music and wiggle with style, this is a great supplement to your little ones dance week! These dancers wear jazz clothes (jazz shorts, fitted top, untitard) to class and tan jazz shoes. They will perform a jazz routine in the year end show.
