Early Childhood Theater

Our creative drama activities are introduced through play filled, movement, music and interactive story telling for children. Creative story telling is an important component of child development. Experiencing theater classes helps support young children's social, emotional, cognitive, and creative play skills. This includes development and practice of crucial language skills. Theater classes stimulate children to use words, solve problems, and express themselves. It is one of the ways children learn about life, about others and themselves. 


Creative Drama Tots (Ages 4–5yrs) ABOUT CREATIVE DRAMA TOTS 

This class introduces children into the world of drama. Children will get the chance to explore storytelling with the use of their imagination. 

Early Childhood Dance 

Early Childhood Dance 

In our early childhood dance program, children ages 18 months to 5 years old, are welcome. With some class offerings including the guidance of their caregiver, and some class offerings drop off (caregiver not required to be in classroom), children will develop coordination, strength, flexibility, and focus. Children move naturally. They move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it’s joyful. When their movement becomes consciously structured and it is performed with awareness, it becomes dance. Dance offers young children an avenue to expand their movement possibilities and skills. 


Creative Movement (Ages 3–4yrs) 

ABOUT CREATIVE MOVEMENT 

This class is designed as an age-appropriate introduction to the exciting world of dance. Students learn the basic elements of movement through storytelling, imagery, rhythmical patterns, improvisation and direction in using space.
