Twinkle Stars Program
This is where the magic starts! We are proud to be a licensed Twinkle Star Studio for children ages 2 to 4 years. Using the four pillars of the Twinkle Star Method; skill building, centre movement, just for fun and show time, this program teaches age appropriate ballet, jazz and tap movement in a creative, and fun setting. With some extra sparkle along the way, our certified faculty keep our Twinkles inspired and excited from start to finish!
Dancers will also learn the basics of each technique as well as developing coordination and gross motor skills like hoping, skipping and jumping. Our program introduces children to many forms of dance in a non-competitive environment, with no pressure, and lots of fun! Taught by our incredible Twinkle Star Faculty, who are caring, engaging, professional and certified. In addition to our regular weekly curriculum, every month is themed to fit the time of year with a special “Sparkle Day”. Some of our most popular Sparkle Days include, Turkey Hop Dance Party, Halloween Dress Up Dance Party, Easter Egg Dance Hunt, Nutcracker Dance Party and our very special Bring Your Parent To Dance Party!
Each dancer finishes the year with a memorable recital performance and Twinkle Star Graduation right one stage in front of family and friends, complete with their own diploma and red carpet appearance!
The Four Pillars of the Twinkle Star Method
Skill Building: Skill Building is the essential base that all dancers need when they startout. They continue to fine tune these skills throughout their dance life. Curriculum is key, and Twinkle Star offers proven on to keep class effective, valuable, and fun for your littlest dancer!
Center Movement: Center movement builds on all the skills they've been learning. Center combinations are taught and practiced. They can really start to dance and move together as a core of tiny dancers. Center Movement is key to experience before they begin to learn choreography for the recital.
Just For Fun: We Keep them coming back for more with fun activities, storylines, and sweetness that every little dancer dreams of. They will beg to come back to class!
Showtime: The big day! Showtime provides choreography, recital themes, and costume to get your little dancer ready for their big show
