BALLET/TAP COMBO

OVERVIEW

Little dancers experiencing class for the first time is one of the most exciting moments at CPAA. Our combo classes provide a solid introduction into the world of dance in a playful, encouraging environment! Classes focus on the basic physical elements of space and how we relate to it, basic loco motor and non-loco motor movements, musical awareness, opposite directions, pathways, and elementary positions & movements and technical foundation of ballet and tap In addition to these physical elements, we integrate the intellectual concepts of self-awareness, teamwork, creative expression, imagination, and basic body health awareness. Educators now know that training young children in the above concepts lays a strong foundation for the later development of reading, mathematics and other educational skills. Early dance training is great preparation for all athletic activities.
