Children's Program at Dance Academy of Mansfield


The Children's Program follows a proven curriculum built for age 3 to age 8 by September 1st. The purpose of the curriculum is to gain confidence, poise, and a solid frame work on which to build beginning ballet and tap technique. The children for this program are ready to be in a class by themselves. They will begin to learn the basic elements of creative movement, move on to pre-ballet skills and finally into the basic skills needed to stand at a barre. Behavior and social skills such as turn-taking and following instructions will be emphasized.
