Andi Teaching

We open each class with "Circle time" Our focus is on fun stretching and strengthening exercises set to favorite preschool nursery songs and creative dance games. From waking -up our toes with magic spells to taking a ride on the back of a lady bug through Egypt.

Children will learn basic ballet steps following the teacher through a series of traditional exercises, and with use the French terminology, begin to expand their young minds in a fun achievable way.

In each class we encourage your child to "dance through a story" and use their imagination. One week the children may find themselves on an adventure with The Nutcracker in Paris and the next on an African Safari discovering the jungle.

"Rhythm through tap" We introduce the basics of tap dancing, focusing on rhythm, games and routines.

Our curriculum grows to accommodate new learning experiences, as the children get older. Each age bracket will study age appropriate material that is safe and fun to learn!

At Penny Lane, our classes will introduce your child to a range of music from around the world, interesting and educational props and most importantly caring teachers, who make learning dance and music, a fun experience.
