This class is a joyful prelude to formal ballet and contemporary training. Young dancers will develop their understanding of rhythm and enhance their coordination as they explore fundamental dance movements in a welcoming, group-class environment. Creativity and self-expression are encouraged! Students must have reached age 6 by the first day of class and be potty trained. Class placement should not be adjusted between 2016-17 sessions unless prior approval is received from MDT&S. Progress through a curriculum is most successful for the student, the class, and the instructor when there is continuity in the learning environment. MDT has a minimum enrollment policy of 5 students per class. If minimum enrollment is not met by the end of the third week of classes, MDT may cancel the class and provide alternative options to students. For questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
