Brookline Music School's Dance Program explores kinesthetic creativity by using movement, music, props, games and play to develop and link students’ learning into complex dance moves and phrases. Dance Instructor Tom Krusinski starts with each child’s strengths within individual and ensemble work, engaging them using the practices of Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, including spatial, linguistic, mathematical and logical. Such intelligences assist in emotional and behavioral control, resisting impulses, developing cognitive flexibility and memory, and bringing courage and joy to meeting challenging situations in and out of the dance class.

Tom Krusinski, Instructor

“Tom is wonderful…he has transformed our daughter in dance class from a little girl who wouldn’t follow along or answer questions (Shy at times) to a bundle of energy and enthusiasm in dance!”

~ BMS Parent

Creative Dance (4 - 5)

In this 15 week class, students are encouraged to respond to music and sound with free movement, self-expression and their own imaginations.  


Pre-Ballet (4 - 5)

An introduction to the fundamental concepts of ballet including the five basic positions, ballet barre, center and across-the-floor exercises.

Ballet (6 - 8)

This class for young dancers stresses basic ballet concepts and encourages personal expression. Previous ballet experience is helpful but not required.

Modern Dance (6 - 8)

There are many styles of modern dance. In this class we will explore ways of dancing in place, moving through space, different spatial patterns and working as a soloist, with partners and in larger ensembles. We will name the moves that they create.


Making Dances for Boys (6 - 8)

An opportunity for boys to dance and create kinesthetic movement. New dances will arise from combining the dance principles of shape, flow and composition as each student increases his unique movement vocabulary.


Girls Ensemble (9 - 12)

In this class, modern vocabulary blends with traditional ballet. Each dancer will be making up original movements to her own music and work on ensemble pieces.


Boys Ensemble (9 - 12)

Students are lead into the world of choreography using music and movements that the boys themselves bring to the class.
