Get ready for a FUN + FANCIFUL approach to dance class!
What do we offer for Pre-School?
We are super excited to launch our NEW + IMPROVED TWIRL program for the 2016-2017 Season!
TWIRL is our exclusive Pre-School and Kinder Program created by Becca and Dani (along with the staff) especially for Rhythm! This engaging program helps your petite dancer learn age appropriate dance steps and proper terminology in a creative & lively setting.
All TWIRL Classic and TWIRL TO THE MAX dancers will receive a custom twirlbook with imaginative activities to do in class. Our TWIRL Fairytale Ballet, Snazzy Jazzy, and Hip Hop Flip Flop dancers will receive twirlsheets throughout the season to enhance their twirl-a-bility! All dancers will receive a reward ribbon or fun tag to keep on their dance bag and will also receive a TWIRL Graduation Certificate at the end of the season!
For little ones ages 2-3, we provide an excellent introduction to dance in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. We offer our TWIRL CLASSIC for this special little age!
For ages 3-4 and 4-5, we offer several choices for your little one! Choose any one (or two...or three) of these classes based on your dancer's personality and love of dance!
TWIRL Classic: (ages 2 – 5) This is our PS and Kinder Combo class we have offered at Rhythm Dance Center for 23 years! It is a classic intro to dance, with a little extra sparkle! Your dancer will be introduced to Ballet and Tap basics that will provide an excellent dance foundation as they grow! We highly recommend this class for all young dancers. Dancers in TWIRL Classic will need black tap shoes, pink ballet shoes, and a dance bag for class. They will perform a tap routine in the year end show. TWIRL FEE: $25 (includes TWIRLbook, ribbon, and certificate)
TWIRL TO THE MAX: (ages 3 – 5) This one and a half hour class includes all the features of our TWIRL Classic class plus some snazzy jazzy moves, and a bit of musical theater! A great class for the little dancer that wants more dance in their week and can’t decide on just one style! Our Twirl to the Max dancers will need black tap shoes, pink ballet shoes, and a dance bag for class. They will perform a tap routine and a ballet routine in the year end show! TWIRL FEE: $25 (includes TWIRLbook, ribbon, and certificate)
FAIRYTALE BALLET: (ages 3 – 5) 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. TWIRL FEE: $15 (includes Fairytale Ballet bag tag, TWIRLsheets, and certificate)
HIP HOP FLIP FLOP: (ages 3 – 5) 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. TWIRL FEE: $15 (includes Hip Hop Flip Flop bag tag, TWIRLsheets, and certificate)
SNAZZY JAZZY: (ages 3 – 5) This class is a super fun and snazzy intro to Jazz for our pre-schoolers and 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, leotard, leggings, unitard) to class and tan jazz shoes. They will perform a jazz routine in the year end show. TWIRL FEE: $15 (includes Snazzy Jazzy bag tag, TWIRLsheets, and certificate)
