School of BNC Expanding Their Programs
Ballet Nouveau Colorado (BNC) is a Broomfield based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving the community for nearly 20 years. BNC is committed to enriching lives through innovation in dance. An active member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education, The School of BNC serves more than 300 students per year and is committed to every student regardless of age, ability, aspiration, or socio-economic status. Under the guidance of Julia Wilkinson Manley since 2002, the school is highly respected for providing a nurturing and professional environment for students from toddlers through adults.
Recently, the School of BNC expanded its programs to include Dance With Me – a class especially for toddlers and their caregivers. This is an early childhood learning and development class designed for children ages 1 to 3 years old and their caregiver. The class explores the three basic elements of dance – time, space and energy – while promoting physiological, emotional, social and cognitive development. Dance With Me acknowledges a child’s innate sense of rhythm and movement ability, provides a safe and fun environment where they can explore and further develop these skills, strengthens family connections and builds confidence.
Dance With Me integrates the physical experience of kinesthetic learning with the other sensory experiences of visual and auditory learning through observing and listening. The class is most effective when caregivers actively participate in the class, as caregivers play an important role in a child’s development and participation is key. Caregivers don’t need to have any expertise or experience in dance – they simply need to have fun!
During the summer, the School of BNC will offer Dance With Me on Saturday mornings. BNC studios are located just off Hwy 36, near the Flatirons Cross Mall. To learn more about this class and other classes and programs at BNC, go to www.bncdance.com or call 303.466.5685.
