If your child is ready to take their instruction further in the world of dance, and is interested in continuing their education in rhythmic movement while learning some dance basics, then consider our Pre-K dance class.
The Pre-K class at Charlotte Klein Dance Centers is our first introductory dance technique class, for children who are four years old. This class is a combination class: 30 minutes of tap dance and 30 minutes of ballet. The dancers will gain a sense of rhythm and musicality within their movement as they learn about tap and step to the beat.
For the ballet section of class, the dancers will begin to learn the very basics of ballet, including body positions and terminology. If you ask what they’ve learned and your child talks about pointed feet, first position or pliés, rest assured they are talking about ballet positions and movements.
Dancers in the Pre-K class will also have an introduction to the exciting world of jazz dance, as we play upbeat music for some of our combinations and movements. This beginners’ class will also perform in our annual recital, so your child will get to show off their new skills in tap dance and ballet.
