Your child will learn dance and tap basics in a non-stop moving class style. We use imagery and Little Barn signature dances taught with repetition, patience, and love. Our goal is to build a solid foundation in dance and a love of dance and theatre promoting body awareness, intelligence, and body confidence. Our unique child-centered method also develops good posture and poise!
SINGING AND ACTING
Campers will have daily vocal and breathing exercises to warm up and expand their voices. All exercises are fun, child oriented and go alongside our acting training. Each 2 week session will include a “song of the week” that students will learn in addition to choosing solos to work on with our teaching artists.
And we can’t forget our Little Barn favorite – acting games followed by playwriting (even kids that don’t yet write on their own can participate)! The student written plays/scenes will be prepared and rehearsed for our bi-monthly showcase and Tik Tok videos.Example of Daily Schedule
