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.
The CDT Preschooler Program is for 4-6 years.
(until they go to kindergarten)
Preschool Program combines a variety of styles of dance to give our dancers a taste of they different style as they are able to choose when they graduate from the preschool program into the pre-junior classes.
We want to give them a strong foundation of dance in a fun, encouraging and positive 1 hour lesson.
Jazz and Hip Hop - movement to popular songs, working on coordination, rhythm, style, jazz kicks, balancing, introduction to jazz technique.
Ballet - engages our dancers into ballet terminology, the foundations of ballet and embrace the love of the art.
Singing/Musical Theatre - introduces a fun way to acknowledge pitch, rhythm, tune and allows pre-schoolers to engage their memory system to remember lyrics
Tap - is the fun, noisy part of the class where students take part in rhythm, timing and foot coordination with their fun tap shoes on!
ADDITIONAL CLASS AVAILABLE - TUMBLING!
Tumbling consists of a variety of role play games engaging muscles and co-ordination for tumbling skills and an introduction to balance, strength, rolls (roley poleys), cartwheels, handstands etc. It's a popular class where children build strength and learn fundamental skills.
Our uniform is not compulsory, we do have a uniform available but dancers just need to wear any leotard and skirt/shorts that they would like to
(which makes it that little bit more affordable).
Parents do not watch classes, you are usually invited in to meet the team, see the environment during their first lesson but due to COVID19 restrictions parents are not able to enter the building yet. We will get photo and video updates of how your dancer is progressing but we find it most beneficial for dancers to grow their confidence through independence.
As part of the CDT preschooler program - you will receive end of term progression reports and our gift to you,
the 'PHOTO OF THE TERM!' CDT also accept both Active Kids and Creative Kids vouchers!
