Action Adventure Story Telling Dance Classes in Philadelphia, PA

Classes

Descriptions

Beginner ZoomDance

This is a high energy class of dance, music, story-telling, imagination and fun! Over the course of the session, children will develop agility, coordination, rhythm, and balance through a dynamic range of actions. There is an emphasis on creativity and building confidence through songs, stories, and performance.

Each week we’ll read a new story and then explore the movement and adventures of the characters. Kids have the opportunity to show off their favorite moves, invent characters, and try lots of new movement ideas. Grown-ups are encouraged to participate in this class with their small dancers.

Intermediate ZoomDance

This class has the same essence as the younger ZoomDance class, with lots of energy and focus on exploring new ideas. We will start to push the edges of dancing the spectrum from wild abandon to careful details.

In addition to learning trickier “moves”, we will start thinking of phrases and dances instead of only individual moves, and students will perform for each other in class. When acting out the story, our teachers will encourage students to offer their own ideas too. Grown-ups drop off their dancers for this one, and are invited in on the last day to see what we’ve been working on.

Ballerinas, tigers, princesses, superheroes, everyone is welcome!

For the youngest dancers, this class will offer lots of ways to engage with dance and music. Class will include warm ups, new moves, various props and instruments, games, and songs. Kids will move and groove and have a blast. We will explore being tactile, loud, sneaky, stretchy, and social. Parents should be prepared to be on the floor and moving as well to facilitate the best experience for your child.

*We suggest that kids are able to stand and walk confidently on their own as a prerequisite to attending ZoomTots.
