SD Atwater is a non-competitive, recreational dance studio that focuses not only on dance skills, but on creative movement, original choreography, dance as art and gently encouraging your child’s self esteem with age appropriate expectations and the joy of dance. Our program is based upon multiple-class lessons which we believe offers the best opportunity for children to learn, improve upon and combine new skills and routines, develop their dancing abilities and improve their mind, body and soul connection.
WHAT IS MUSICAL THEATRE & JAZZ?
This fun class combines upbeat, stylized movement with proper technique. Jazz dance is based on ballet principles with each class consisting of a warm-up using isolated movements, across the floor progressions, and current choreography all set to age appropriate music. Emphasis and high focus will also be placed on musical interpretation, and learning performance skills such as connecting with the audience and telling a story through dance and facial expressions, along with character building. We highly recommend this 50-minute class for all young dancers especially those who love to perform wherever they go.
BENEFITS: Self confidence, coordination, strength, flexibility, endurance.
