Our tiny tot's classes consist of three different dance styles: ballet, jazz, and acrobatics. The class runs for 45 minutes for Preschool. We focus on the dance basics to help the student to better understand their bodies and rhythm. It sets them up with a good foundation of dance styles, so they will then be able to easily transfer into the styles of their choosing once they get older. Our Tiny Tots (Preschool) dance class is held in the morning in the Auditorium and is open to any students who are enrolled in the ELC or younger siblings of current Norwest Christian College students K-12. Enrolment in this class requires parents’ attendance for the duration of the dance lesson. Due to the age of the children, we believe that it is in their best interest to have their parents present. Parents will be required to wait either in the Auditorium Foyer or with the dance class. If your child attends ELC on the same day as dance classes, once the dance class has finished parents will need to walk their children up to the ELC and sign them in.
