The Grown-up & Me series is for boys and girls ages 2-4 with accompanying adults remaining in the dance studio, either watching or participating in the fun. Class involves dance movement with creative exercises, imaginative activities with props and instruments, and obstacle courses.
For MBT’s 3-4 year olds, the Creative Movement Program provides an engaging weekly toddler dance class and preschool dance class to start learning fundamentals of ballet technique and vocabulary. Focusing on gross motor skills, this class is taught using imagery, fun games, and music.
An extension of the Creative Movement Program, MBT’s Early Ballet Program continues building fundamentals of ballet technique and vocabulary in a fun way for 5-6 year olds. This program begins the transition from gross to fine motor skills. While most of class is conducted in center exercises, limited barre work begins in Early Ballet 2.
Creative Movement/Early Ballet students have the option to participate in a Young Dancer Showcase in our Black Box Theater in Gaithersburg and at the Annual Gala! In the instance that we cannot produce planned performances due to COVID restrictions, video will be taken in in-studio classes and shared with parents.
