In addition to our full schedule of classes in our studios, Claire School of Dance provides dance classes onsite at satellite locations through our partnership with Cathedral House Montessori School.
The Claire School of Dance offers students ages 3 through 5 classes designed not only to introduce children to dance concepts and prepare them for formal dance studies but to enhance their overall development. Listening skills, patience, and taking turns are taught along with fundamental dance principles such as lifted backs, strong ankles, tempo, and awareness of space. Imaginations too get a workout – every lesson includes an opportunity for children to make up their own dances.
Based in part on the National Training Program of the American Ballet Theatre (in which Ms. Claire is a certified instructor), classes with the Claire School of Dance are a first step into the joy of movement.
Dance classes for toddler, Primary and Kinder students meet at Cathedral House Fridays mornings between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. Each class lasts 30 minutes.
