BALLET EURYTHMICS

Ballet eurhythmics enriches the children’s musicality and expression. By combining the technical form of ballet with the musical understanding techniques of eurhythmics, the children will learn to move with expression while developing the good concentration that is the bases of all performing arts. The students will learn the positions that form the fundamental elements of ballet. They will also learn to move their body with the help of a variety of dance aids, such as balls, hula-hoops, and scarves. As flexibility should to be taught from a young age, this is a great opportunity for the children to increase dexterity and flexibility. It will be a fun class moving and dancing as individuals and together in formation. A ballet outfit and shoes is required for this class.

Students are encouraged to get creative and expressive with their work, and to move between the natural flow of letters and words and pictures. Taisan Tanaka is a self-taught contemporary Japanese artist utilizing the traditional form of 書画(Sho-Ga). He especially loves working with children, whose movements are not restricted by formal training and ideas. All materials such as ink, brushes, paper, etc. will be provided for the students but they will need to wear clothes that can get stained with ink.



WEDNESDAY

KIDS JAZZ EURYTHMICS

Eurhythmics is a rhythmic exercise in which the children express what they are feeling freely though playing musical instruments and moving their bodies. In this class, the children truly experience the music, listening to it, understanding it and expressing it. They engage with the music in various multi sensory ways to develop a feeling for the different rhythms and tempos. In addition to the benefits of rhythmic exercise, the children learn the Japanese language through singing traditional and contemporary Japanese children's songs. Moreover, we will play Jazzy Japanese nursery rhymes so the children will learn Japanese words as well.
