Embracing the Elements of Dance:
Boogie and Books goes beyond simple movements. Our program breaks down the fundamental elements of dance, such as rhythm, balance, and coordination, offering a holistic understanding of the art form. Children will learn terms such as tempo, syllable, space, choreography, levels, and much more!
Go on Melodic Adventures:
Enchanting, age-appropriate songs accompanied by movement activities ignite a sense of rhythm and harmony. This multi-sensory experience not only introduces musical concepts but also enhances language development and memory skills.
Children are transported into the world of dance through carefully curated books that spark their imagination. Engaging stories not only nurture their love for reading but also deepen their appreciation for dance and its history. Books such as “Giraffes Can’tDance”, “How Do You Dance”, and “Finding My Dance” will captivate imaginations!
Boogie and Books are thoughtfully aligned with Ohio Department of Education Learning Standards, ensuring that each activity seamlessly integrates with preschool curriculum goals. This comprehensive approach enriches the learning experience and prepares children for academic success.
Beyond the steps and words, our program is dedicated to fostering vital social-emotional skills. From building self-confidence to promoting teamwork and communication, Boogie and Books provide a safe space for children to flourish emotionally.
