Pre-Ballet (4-5)


Students in Pre-Ballet will learn fundamental concepts of ballet including the five basic positions, ballet barre, center and across-the-floor exercises. Tom encourages students to learn gestures and movements through observation, encouraging attention to detail and allowing for individual expressions of the same basic movement. The class will teach students how to use the mirror to observe movements and self-correct, and use improvisational games to integrate basic ballet concepts in to their own vocabulary.

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.
