Pre-School Classes at Eugenia’s Dance Studio provide an excellent foundation for learning tap, ballet, jazz, musical theater and also contribute to reading readiness and success in school. Eugenia Smith created the songs and dances which are used by all our faculty members in their pre-school classes. She also taught her curriculum to teachers at national dance conventions and workshops across the country, sharing the joy of dancing to age appropriate music that makes learning fun!
Dancing classes are an important part of a child’s life in their early years – promoting confidence which is often reflected in school and personal activities.
Our classes are ideal for 5-8 YEAR OLD CHILDREN who have never danced before and 5-6 year old children with previous pre-school dance experience.
More difficult dance steps and dance concepts in the Dancing School Kids™ curriculum are taught along with new dance combinations performed to a variety of music styles.
Commercial and theatrical JAZZ styles are taught with elements of hip hop to 7 yr. olds to teens and adults. Dancers are taught leaps, kicks, turns and also taught to learn combinations quickly, perform them with confidence and showmanship, giving students the winning edge at auditions. Because of this training many Eugenia’s Dance Studio students win scholarships at regional and national conventions. They excel in school musicals and in college dance departments.
BALLET is the foundation of all good technique for all forms of dance. Ballet stresses proper placement of the body, developing stretch and strength and good balance. Dancers learn to jump, leap and turn well. The elegance makes ballet appealing to many students. All competition dancers must take ballet.
TAP classes at Eugenia’s Dance Studio teach students to listen to, remember and learn rhythm. Tap students are excellent at keeping time with music which also helps them in other forms of dance. Interesting, fun filled learning methods are used. Dancers learn standard time steps and theatrical tap plus modern rhythm tap styles. Tap games are sometimes played to help students copy each others rhythms and create rhythmic combinations of their own. This is fun at every level and encourage improvement of technique and creativity.
Based on a combination of jazz and ballet, LYRICAL dance expresses emotions, creates a mood and expresses lyrics of a song. Students who take ballet and jazz are considered for lyrical class.
