THE 3 KEYS of our KIDS BALLROOM PROGRAM:
1. Social Dancing
The SOCIAL DANCE part of class, teaches your child to dance the basic steps in foxtrot, single step swing, waltz, cha cha cha, mambo, tango, and polka. We also incorporate manners and etiquette such as learning to ask a partner to dance, escorting, how to sit properly, and eat refreshments at an event. It also teaches them a deeper awareness and respect for other's feelings.
Learning to perform a fun choreographed routine is both a healthy challenge for children as well as a creative outlet for a them to express themselves.
You'll be amazed as you watch their confidence and self esteem grow as they become comfortable performing to audiences, including you their parents!
The routines they learn break away from the basic steps and are used to put on a great show for others to enjoy as well as ignite their creativity.
Stylish, modest costumes are ordered and worn for these performances.
It is a high priority for us at THE BEAT to teach our students to develope their talents and then share them with the world to bless the lives of others.
We try to do this by performing at charity and fundraising events as well as touring nursing and retirement homes.
We also perform for local schools to inspire and lead their peers to get involved in good wholesome activities like dance and sports.
