Ms. Allegra’s classes are always engaging and use the children’s own creativity to keep kids having fun while moving and learning. Her patient and innovative approach to teaching fosters each student’s unique qualities to bring out the best in every child. During each class she strives to connect with all students and provide them with an experience that helps shape their bodies and minds during formative years.
Dance Classes Provide:
- The program is designed to improve cognitive function through exercises that help stimulate and develop important neurological connections in the brain. These connections directly affect children’s performance later in life with tasks such as reading and writing.
- It is vital that the children begin the program by accomplishing small goals that then give them the confidence to accomplish larger goals. This process makes transitions to new movement patterns fun and seamless for young kids. As the children’s confidence blossoms they not only understand how to deal with difficult steps and concepts, but actually welcome, and get excited by a new challenge.
Exposure to Arts Culture:
- Throughout the curriculum, children get exposure to a number of different dance styles including ballet, hip hop, modern and jazz. They also learn proper dance terminology which translates directly into their understanding of patterns and different movement concepts.
