Maluki Maestro * Drop-Off Kinder Ballet class*


Features taught:
*Ballet Terms and Positions: Most of the terminology used in ballet dance is French. The words and phrases describing ballet are descriptions of the actions taking place. It's important to get dancers (especially little ones) started learning important dance vocabulary early on.
*Turnout: Turnout is an essential part of classical ballet technique. We work on developing flexibility and muscle stretching that improves turnout.
*Self-Expression: Ballet is a powerful form of self-expression
*Learning to Transcend Limits: Every day children come to ballet class to do better than yesterday. Little ones learn that their foremost competitor is themselves.

TUESDAYS: 4:30 - 5:15pm

DESCRIPTION

Maluki Maestro teaches a diverse repertoire of musical abilities that children can learn in a fun way. 
These are some of the lesson's features taught during each class: 
*Solfège: the ABCs of music that consists in naming pitches (notes). 
* Piano and Violin: kids learn by Identifying notes in the instrument so we create engaging activities around this. We are aware that this is the first step to play a song. This instrumental approach also helps to strength both eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills 
*The class is bilingual (Spanish and English). 
Younger children have an age advantage to develop a strong sense of pitch than older kids so we try to motivate the little ones with fun activities. We also encourage parents to practice with them at home through a series of recordings posted on Vimeo.

Magic tricks are used to practice numbers and counting, and a wheel is spun to reinforce the names and sounds of animals. At the end of class, the children are invited to sing with the band (Karaoke style) and play the band’s instruments.  Every kid (and their adults) go home singing all the Songs for Seeds tunes.
