Instructional Sports & Dance
Tiny Toes Ballet, Ages 3-4
This program is a fun and active way for children to learn ballet! Students will learn ballet techniques, build strength, and learn choreography. In the last week, students will put on a performance showcasing what they have learned.
Kids Ballet, Ages 5-7
Children will learn the fundamentals of ballet through awareness of body movement and creativity. While participating in exercise and dance sequences, participants will learn coordination while exploring various levels of movement that develop strength.
Students will learn a series of stylistic moves paired with Hip Hop music to help work on musicality, coordination, cognitive awareness and personalization. Students will work on moving to the beat, remembering dance moves and expressing themselves within the choreographed movement.
Sessions focus on improving basketball skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting, and offensive/defensive schemes. Small-sided matches also give your athlete the in-game experience they need to really learn the game.
We utilize the USTA 10 & under Tennis curriculum, which uses youth tennis equipment, but focuses more on fun activities to strengthen eye-hand coordination to make tennis more enjoyable from early on in the learning process. They will learn a variety of skills that will not only help them in tennis, but in other sports as well.
Arts & Education
This workshop will explore the art of collage and its many materials, techniques, and approaches and possibilities for personal expression. Students will cut, tear, and glue a variety of found and painted papers to larger paper and work with media such as water based paint, pencils, and charcoal. They will experiment with color, shape, texture and line to layer compositions and organize images and ideas. Some projects will include three dimensional formats such as assemblage and artists’ books and visits, when possible, with local artists who use paper. Reflection and dialogue will be an ongoing part of the workshop. All levels of experience are welcome. Students bring their own supplies and will receive a list of materials and small tools.
