Ten minutes with a child reveals an undisputable fact – kids like to move. With no concerns about tiring themselves too quickly or “over-training,” children are in perpetual motion and need only the slightest encouragement to add form and substance to their efforts. While still too young for the rigors of ballet, creative movement provides structure to their instinctive desire to dance and provides a new and exciting means of self-expression which they can (and will) share with their family upon request. Or maybe just because they feel like it.
Nurturing Pathways® is an Early Childhood creative dance program promoting healthy development and strong bonds between parent or guardian and child. The classes focus on movement, a child's first language, and enrich everything from motor coordination to music, language and social skills. The curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of each stage of development from infancy through age three. All the classes involve dance explorations, musical instruments, rhyming exercises and sensory-rich props.
