Where Dance Begins
At Dance Extreme, we believe in fostering a love for dance from the earliest age. That’s why we’ve created the Lil Movers program, specifically designed to introduce young children to the joy of movement and music. Our Lil Movers program is divided into three age-specific classes: Movers, Shakers, and Groovers, catering to children aged 2.5-3.5 years, 4 years, and 5 years, respectively. Let’s explore why our classes are divided by single ages and the exciting elements they offer.
Movers, for children aged 2.5-3.5 years, lays the foundation for their dance journey with a 30-minute class. This class is based on ballet and jazz movement, carefully crafted to suit the developmental needs and attention span of our youngest dancers. Through engaging exercises and imaginative play, our experienced instructors introduce fundamental dance concepts, such as body awareness, coordination, and rhythm. Movers allows these young dancers to explore the beauty of movement and develop a strong sense of musicality in a nurturing and age-appropriate environment.
As our dancers grow, they progress to the Shakers class at the age of 4. This 45-minute class builds upon the ballet and jazz foundation established in Movers and introduces elements of acro movement. Shakers provides an expanded dance experience, allowing our young dancers to develop strength, balance, and coordination through introductory acrobatic skills. By incorporating these dynamic elements, we further enhance their physical capabilities and artistic expression. Through engaging activities and creative choreography, Shakers classes inspire confidence, foster creativity, and encourage social interaction among our young dancers.
Once dancers reach the age of 5, they enter the Groovers class, a 45-minute exploration of ballet, jazz, and acro movement. Groovers combines the grace and discipline of ballet, the expressive flair of jazz, and the dynamic athleticism of acro. Through structured exercises and choreography, our instructors help these young dancers refine their technique, explore musicality, and develop a greater range of movement. Groovers is designed to encourage artistic exploration, build strength and flexibility, and lay the groundwork for further growth in the dance world.
By dividing our Lil Movers program into single-age classes, we ensure that each child receives age-appropriate instruction and attention. Young dancers progress at their own pace, surrounded by peers who are at a similar developmental stage. This approach allows our instructors to tailor the curriculum to meet the unique needs and abilities of each age group, maximizing their growth potential and creating a positive learning environment.
At Dance Extreme, the safety and well-being of our young dancers are paramount. Our experienced instructors guide the children with care, ensuring that movements are developmentally appropriate and that proper technique is emphasized from the very beginning. We create a supportive and encouraging atmosphere where our Lil Movers can thrive, building confidence, nurturing creativity, and forming the foundation for a lifelong love of dance.
Join us at Dance Extreme’s Lil Movers program, where the magic of dance begins. Watch your child’s love for movement grow as they twirl, jump, and explore the joy of dance in a nurturing environment. With Movers, Shakers, and Groovers, we lay the groundwork for their future dance adventures, one step at a time.
