CDT is a family based studio that provides a safe, nurturing and encouraging program with high quality training, qualified teachers and focused on the fun and love of dance.
We offer a free trial class because we are confident in our programs and what we offer our students.
Our toddler and preschooler programs are based on the developmental stages of our young dancers and the Early Years Learning Framework.
We have two programs for our minis:
Toddler Program - 2-3years
Preschooler Program - 4-5 years
The toddler program is a fun, interactive lesson which creates a positive introduction to dance in a 40 minute lesson.
This lesson includes:
Jazz - movement to popular songs embracing strength and coordination with hips, arms, bounces, model walks, balancing, jazz style and gross motor coordination.
Ballet - includes a lot of imaginary play where toddlers get to be butterflies, bunnies, fairies and engage in a variety of role playing as well as using props to introduce the love of ballet and ballet technique for young dancers.
Singing – introduces a fun way to acknowledge pitch, rhythm, tune and allows toddlers to engage their memory system to remember lyrics
TODDLER TAP CLASS
We are so excited about our tap class for toddlers, the most fun making sounds with their feet and learning about foot coordination and rhythm.
There are limited spots available in this class so if you would like a spot in this class get in quick!
