Fairy Tale Creative Movement and Ballet/Tap are an enchanting Ballet/Tap class with magical fairy tale dances and stories! Each week the teacher weaves the stories and characters into the Ballet/Tap lessons. This allows the teacher to take these little princesses and princes on their own magical Fairy Tale Journey. This class will focus on the basics of Ballet and Tap while still exciting the imagination each week ! Every 6 weeks will be a new Fairy Tale theme: Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Nutcracker, Little Red Riding Hood, The Frog Prince, and Swan Lake. At the beginning of each 6 week unit you will receive 4-5 songs from the actual Fairy Tales. Young students ages 3 to 6 will learn the joys of dance through connections with Fairy tale stories and their characters. The Princesses 7-8 will learn Tendus taught from 6th position, releves, arm port de bras and sautes. French ballet terms used are developed naturally within the child's vocabulary. Students are introduced to the structure of a classical ballet class and are taught within that frame using the stories. The class begins by creating a scene from a famous fairy tale. Using props and music, the students will explore dance movement in a fun, unique environment.
