The Early Childhood Dance Program is designed for children ages 3 - 5 years of age who want to experience dance independently. Children will be exposed to a variety of music, exercises, and stretches that aim to develop balance, rhythm, creativity and self-awareness. Early Childhood Dance students explore basic dance elements (space, time and energy) through NOBA’s Moving 4 Health curriculum that focuses on arts integration and nutrition concepts.
* Class locations and schedules are subject to change.
* No audition or prior dance experience necessary.
* Classes are tuition-free and open to all children 6-14.
* Students are placed in the appropriate class based on both age and experience level.
