About The Toddler Program.
The CDT Toddler program introduces elements of jazz, ballet and singing.
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 of our toddlers. The exercises delivered are curriculum based working towards achieving goals and most importantly HAVING FUN!
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
During Term 3 and 4 - dancers will be working on their 2 concert routines for the end of year concert. (ballet and jazz)
This year, the concert is on 29th November at Camden Civic Centre. **TBC
Term One: (30/1/23-6/4/23)
Students settle into class, creating bonds with teachers and class members. Basic program is introduced as students are encouraged to explore their gross motor mobility. Stretching, turn taking and a foundation of dance.
Term Two: (24/4/23-1/7/23)
Toddlers work on achieving travelling skills - skipping, fairy runs, gallops, jumps. In the jazz portion of the class toddlers will learn a routine to perform in the mid year concert. In the ballet portion toddlers will be familiar with plie, tendus and transference of weight.
Toddlers begin learning their jazz and ballet end of year concert routines.
They will work on further progressing their skills and practice them independently.
