This workshop is intended for the youngest dancers. At the workshop, we develop motor skills, straighten skills of left and right sides of the body and improve balance. In addition to warm up exercises, we learn the basic elements, which form the base for the dance techniques and are necessary for later dance education. We also play games for auditory rhythmic exercises and then use them in dance choreographies, which are based on cute children's songs.
Ballet / Dance for Children
Instructor: Rebeka Hanžel
Age: 5 - 7 y/o
Time: Wednesday, 16.40 - 17.25, Hall 4
This workshop is intended for dancers who have some dancing experience. Throughout the year, the workshop gains a structure of a dance training, which is still playful and interesting for children. The exercises enable us to learn basic dance elements, we explore the space (diagonal, floor, jumps), but above all we encourage children to be independent in their movement and execution of choreographies. Stage orientation regarding space and dance partners is the foundation of a good performance; therefore, the youngest dancers are being encouraged to develop these concepts.
