About The Preschooler Program.

The CDT Preschool program incorporates jazz, ballet, tap and musical theatre. You will see a new side of them as we build confidence, co-ordination and imagination in class!

The program encourages the physical, social and emotional development and gives them the foundation working towards their prejunior classes. The exercises delivered are curriculum based working towards achieving goals and most importantly HAVING FUN!

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 and introduces RAD ballet.

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!

During Term 3 and 4 - dancers will be working on their 3 concert routines for the end of year concert. (tap, ballet and jazz)

In 2023, the concert is on 29th November at Camden Civic Centre.** TBC

 

Preschool Tumbling - we have an extension class which our dancers love. They develop strength and coordination and practice their rolls, cartwheels, handstands and bridges. 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.
