Make Your Move is thrilled to be in partnership with the Growing Room locations across Lee County, Alabama. As a branch of our in-studio "Starlet Academy," MYM instructors visit some of the littlest dancers twice a week at the Growing Room facilities.
Designed to inspire, educate, and stimulate creativity in first-time, or recreational dancers, the Starlet Academy at the Growing Room mirrors everything MYM stands for in-studio. Classes are offered in combination format of Tap, Jazz and Ballet and are geared to promote camaraderie among dancers. In addition, instructors nurture the teaching-learning process, and make sure children take time to smile and enjoy the class.
MYM takes pride in creating a fun, loving, age-appropriate atmosphere.
Starlet Academy Classes by Age:
Ages 3-4: Twinkle Tots (TT). Twinkle Tots is an introduction to dance. The primary goal is to foster a love of movement. The creative component is quite large. Several fun or special activities happen in each class. For example, a scarf or teddy bear dance at the end can facilitate the dancer's own physical expression. Taking part in dancing out a narrative helps children to understand that dancing is expression. It is a means of communicating feelings and actions. The vocabulary covered in Twinkle Tots-1 and Twinkle Tots-2 is all steps that a 3-4 year old can master while building self-confidence. The vocabulary is also set up to prepare students for Twinkle Stars/Kinder Stars.
Ages 4-5: Twinkle Stars (TS). Twinkle Stars prepares the beginning dancer for more complex movement. The primary goal is to contine to foster the love of movement and prepare the dancer for the structure of the Kinder Stars class. The creative component is quite large. Several formation changes, memory games and more advanced across the floor movement is introduced. The vocabulary covered in Twinkle Stars is a continuation of the Twinkle Tots curriculum and is set up to prepare students for Kinder Stars.
