MY DANCZ ~ OPEN HOUSE @ MY GYM
Yes, we are opening up Ballet Classes in My Gym!
Ballet is one of the most graceful forms of dance. It has been around for centuries. Not only is ballet a joy to watch, it also has a range of benefits for those who take up this dance program.
Our new program, My Dancz introduces the fundamentals of a structured dance class in a fun, noncompetitive way! Children will gain confidence as they learn the vocabulary of ballet, are taught basic stretches and barre exercises, and are given opportunities to move to music. This class is designed to encourage an early love of dance! Our lessons are compelling, interactive and thought-provoking, getting students to think beyond the confines of the dance studio compare to other dance schools.
Dance Level 1: 2.5 – 3 years old:
•Basic coordination in the body
•Expressiveness and enjoyment through music and movement
Dance Level II (Pre-ballet): 3 – 5 years old
Basic ballet techniques will be introduced to the children through the Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing (CSTD) syllabus. Children will have the opportunity to sit for a legitimate Ballet examination under the CSTD examination board. This beginner level will help the children to have a good start to Classical Ballet. Children will learn to develop their musicality and enjoyment in dancing with the various rhythm used in this syllabus.
Dance Level III (Pre-Primary in Dance): 5years old & above
Basic ballet techniques will be introduced to the children through the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus. Children will have the opportunity to sit for a legitimate Ballet examination under the RAD examination board. Children will be exposed to many props to aid them in their learning. A Story-telling component in the syllabus will help the children to develop their expressiveness in a fun and exciting way. With the different dynamics incorporated in the syllabus, the children will be able to learn to work together with their peers to create a dance together.
