mommy & Me

ages 18 months to 2.5 years 

 

Every toddler loves to move, shake, jump and sing. This 30-minute class is designed as movement exploration for children ages 18-26 months to complete with their moms/guardian in the class with them. The use of props, mats, and sing-along songs allows each adult to help their child develop motor and coordination skills in a fun, structured environment with a Sterling Studio instructor to guide them. This class is a perfect opportunity for babies to get in on the dance fun before they are old enough to join class on their own for more dance instruction. Dancers are required to wear ballet slippers or bare feet; adults are required to come barefoot.

Each class begins by warming up our muscles, stretching and reviewing our ballet feet and arm positions during a circle warm-up.

We travel to magical lands and pretend to be things like beautiful flowers, butterflies and of course princesses. Each month has a new theme such as Fairy Garden or Winter Wonderland. Each princess will get her own binder for her class. We give out sticker charts to keep track of our progress, coloring pages that match our theme of the month, and a certificate of completion that your dancer will receive after your parent "sneak peek" where you are invited to come into the class room to see what they have been learning, see a little dance they will perform for you and get their certificate. Video and picture taking is always welcome during "sneak peek". We also will have a Spotify (free online music library) where you can play the songs we use in class at home....for FREE! These playlists are also added each moth with the theme.
