Preschool Activities: Why Creative Dance is the Best
Does your child love to move when you play music? Play music and they will dance around the room. Observe them closely and you will notice that they repeat the same movements over and over. They not only have a limited early speaking vocabulary, they have a limited early movement vocabulary. The best Creative Dance activities engage your child's imagination. Expanding their movement vocabulary in our creative dance classes is so beneficial. We make learning fun and that is why this is a perfect preschool activity for your child.
Our creative dance classes work on things like developing body awareness, loco-motor skills, strength, and flexibility. However, children are capable of learning much more, and we take full advantage of this opportunity.
We introduce your child to movement concepts such as levels and directions in space, pathways, and qualities of movement. Your child will see, feel, and experience moving fast, slow, sharp, smooth, strong, light, etc. For example, they will take one movement that feels very familiar in their body, and with the instructors guidance, make it into a dozen different movement variations. They’ll try it high, low, backwards, upside down, with a partner, etc. It’s all wrapped in fun creative themes and it opens up unlimited possibilities to move, express, and relate to the world around them.
