About Little Dippers
Dance is a form of exercise and art that is multifaceted by encouraging the development of physical, psychologic, social, and intellectual embetterment. It is a safe and nurturing practice for developing minds, starting as young as 2, and can be continued to be celebrated lifelong. Unlike other forms of exercise, dance stimulates the advancement of both creative and physical minds teaching an understanding of body, coordination, exploration of space, synchronization, partner cooperation, and artistry of expression. Overall, dance is not simply a method for energy expenditure, but a measure of fostering youth to take advantage of all their gifts and talents in becoming their absolute best, and letting them shine.
Dance is an underutilized resource of physical exercise and creative exploration in preschools throughout the United States. It is a rarely offered option at most preschool educational facilities, forcing families to seek instruction elsewhere at after hour programs, which can be both time limiting and challenging. The benefits of early introduction into dance are vast for growing minds and would be a welcome addition to a location of higher learning such as preschool. This is where Little Dippers Dance comes into play.
The Little Dippers Preschool Dance Program was created with the mindset of establishing age appropriate principles of dance to children attending preschool education or daycare settings at organized schools. It is founded by a well structured curriculum to match goals and abilities of all participants, while nurturing the personal exploration of creativity and art. The Little Dippers Preschool Program brings the convenience of dance education and yoga to you and to families, helping ensure all interested youth have the opportunity to participate in the many benefits of dance and yoga. Lastly, the Little Dippers Preschool Dance Program promotes uniqueness in your preschool education, offering your students a direct pathway to take the leap into the wonderful world of dance.
“Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility, they move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. When their movement becomes consciously structured and is performed with awareness for its own sake, it becomes dance.”
