I am looking for a dance class for my preK DD.
Could you guys please tell me which type of class is right for her so that later on in the future she can apply to practice Ballroom dancing or cheerleading?
All of the classes I have known in my area is the combination of Ballet/Tap/Jazz (they're more Ballet and Tap at this age). Do you think this class is suitable?
Thank you guys.
I happened to find a play-story/pretend ballet class for my dd at that age (real loose at the teaching of proper ballet, gentle introduction to dance with stuffed animals and fairy tales) that was a lot of fun. She liked it more than the other 'just ballet' dance class (though I find a lot of the young kids like tap because it's noisy. We didn't come across any tap/ballet stuff around pre-k ages).
We also did a preschool tumbling-types of classes (which would also provide a base for stuff like cheerleading).
depends on what kind of personality ur dd has.
dd at dance hated waiting her turn. she'd look in the mirror and make faces or ham it up so she missed directions. we ended up taking her out of ballet and realised she really needs one on one.
how about gymnastics? dd enjoyed that more than dance.
i have to say its really hard to find a kid friendly dance place. the one here closed down recently :(
Exactly, my DD is shy so I prefer something more active than ballet (it's slow & gentle...).
DD likes gymnastics too, but I think about dance because she likes music.
But you're right, they have to take turn with dancing. I will have to consider this.
Ds is in a "creative movement" dance class lead by a contemporary dancer. They do a warm up, read a story, and physically act the story out using movement and dance. It has been pretty excellent. There are other options that ballet/tap/jazz but not always available everywhere
