Ballet (6-8)


Expanding on the concepts of Pre-Ballet, Ballet places a focus on the development of more complex movements. The class will introduce more sophisticated turns, steps, and leaps. Students will learn about timing and coordination through movement games, as well as use props to emphasize ballet alignment and balance. Stretching will be incorporated in to each class to familiarize students with the muscles that are specific to the ballet vocabulary. Students will dance to a variety of music including, world music, classical, jazz, pop, and more.

Dance

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.
