Creative Dance 2
(Ages 4-5 years) Young boys and girls continue their development by identifying basic forms of movement through imaginative games, songs, music and rhythmical patterns at an age appropriate level while continuing to foster independence. Students learn concepts of body and spatial awareness, use of energy, taking direction from their instructor and sharing turns with peers.
Session 1: The Wonders of Winter
January 11 - February 9 (no classes 1/18, 1/19)
Creative Dance and Pre-Ballet students will dance to Waltz of the Snowflakes from Nutcracker and Vivaldi’s Winter as they explore the wonders of our beautiful Colorado winters. Students will explore the energy and movements of gently falling snow and sharp, angular icicles along with winter themed interactive exercises to foster imagination and growth appropriate for each age group.
Session 2: Love is in the Air
February 15 - March 20 (no classes 2/24 - 27)
Creative and Pre-Ballet students will be introduced to Cupid from the ballet Don Quixote and the love story between the characters Kitri and Basilio. Students will explore feelings of happiness, caring and love through movement, music, shapes and patterns associated with these feelings. Love is in the Air is designed to help our youngest students cope with the stresses of the current pandemic and is sure to help our adults as well!
Session 3: Signs of Spring
March 22 - April 24 (no classes 3/29 - 4/3)
Creative and Pre-Ballet Students will dance for the change of season through Vivaldi’s Spring and the Spring Variation from the ballet Cinderella. New growth and rebirth will be explored through imaginative movements representing dormant winter life waking up after a long rest. Classes will be interactive, allowing students to express their ideas of seedlings growing, flowers opening and birds hatching through speaking, dance and music.
Session 4: A Trip to Italy
April 26 - May 22 (finishes one week after regular Academy classes)
Creative and Pre-Ballet Students will take an imaginary trip to Italy as they explore the ballet Flower Festival at Genzano.
