Dance Stars is a unique preschool dance program that introduces children to the magical world of dance, through imagination and creative movement, as well as assisting in the development of basic gross motor skills. Dance Stars is a developmentally appropriate dance program that teaches the basic concepts of movement, music appreciation, rhythm and poise. Dance Stars builds self-confidence and self-esteem in young children as they actively develop a love of dance.
At Dance Stars, children learn about moving in a routine and working together as a group whilst remembering a sequence of steps. We also have a focus on self-expression and interpretation as our little dancers dance with different props (such as tambourines and maracas) to dramatise and recognise rhythms in different styles of music.
Children experience dancing in groups, in partners and on their own which adds great value to their social and emotional development. Lessons include educational components, such as shapes, numbers or colours for younger children, and cultural awareness, anatomy or the environment for the older age groups.
The program is divided into 3 age specific categories:
- 2-3 year olds – Mini Dance Stars
- 3-4 year olds – Mega Dance Stars
- 4/5 year olds – Super Dance Stars
- All three stages are tailored to the capabilities and needs of each age group
