5's & 6's Musical Theatre is a 60 minute, fun, action-packed singing, acting and theatre dance class for children who are 5 or 6 by October 1 of the school year in which class begins.
Students study voice, acting, & jazz dance skills with fun, easy to understand games & songs. In addition, dancers are taught to use their good dance manners by respecting other students, the studio and the teacher.
Dancers will learn two or three song and dance routines over the course of our 36 week term and present the final dance at our spring performance. Parents will have the opportunity to view the other two dances in the studio as they are completed.
This class is designed with the typical developmental abilities of 5 and 6 year olds in mind. Children must be 5 or 6 by October 1 to enroll. Because the curriculum progresses incrementally from August to May and is based on the age and corresponding developmental abilities of the dancers in the fall, strict adherence to the age limit is enforced.
All dancers wear a specific pinch front tank leotard*, ballet pink dance tights and pink leather ballet shoes. All hair must be secured in a bun or pony tail.
*Leotard colors: 5's - Light Pink, 6's - Eggplant
-->Want to enroll in multiple dance styles, but don't want 2 or 3 hour-long classes per week for your little one? Consider our 30-minute add-on classes. Add-ons in musical theatre and/or tap happen immediately before or after ballet, and can be added to any enrollment in a standard length (sixty minute) class.
