Burlington Dance Company Classes and Programs:
PRE-SCHOOL & BEGINNER DANCE PROGRAMS:BDC is fortunate to have instructors in our preschool programs, which in addition to their extensive dance training, are also Halton Board Educators specializing in primary education. These faculty members combine their knowledge of teaching young children, with their love of dance to create a unique, and very special program designed with the needs of a preschooler and young student in mind. Programs offered for young children are as follows:
PARENT & TOT (30 minutes) 2 years of ageExplore music and movement alongside your toddler or pre-schooler in a 12 week session.
FIRST STEPS (30 minutes) 3 years of ageIntroduce your child to dance in a shorter program format which explores music and movement. First Steps runs in 12 week sessions. Parents do not participate in these classes. First Step graduates can enroll in our full season program Dancin' Tots.
DANCIN' TOTS (3 1/2-7 years)
Dancin' Tots Levels I-IV: Combination of pre-ballet, jazz and tap for 3 1/2 - 7 year-olds. The student is exposed to a wide range of dance movements, with emphasis on technique, song, dance routines, imagery and improvisation. NOTE: There is no need to buy Tap shoes for the Dancin' Tots program, as they are provided for use during the class by the school. At the completion of Level IV, students are ready for specialized study in ballet, tap & jazz. All of these classes run for the full season and will participate in our year end recital, "That's Entertainment".
