Offerings for Early Learners
The Community Arts School believes in the importance of beginning students early in arts education. Through discovery, experimentation and playing, students begin developing their social and emotional skills, language skills, problem-solving skills and early literacy skills. In addition, creative movement and imaginative play foster growth with a students’ sensory and motor skills.
We offer programming for early learners in the areas of Dance, Music and Theatre.
The early learners dance programming at Baldwin Wallace Community Arts School introduces students to foundational dance technique and terminology while encouraging social skills, independence and FUN! Dance promotes balance, coordination, social awareness, artistic expression, physical development and cognitive development in early learners. Our loving, specialized instructors work with each child to ensure they are reaping all of the benefits of a dance education while providing them the foundational technique necessary to be successful in their future dance classes.
Creating a solid musical foundation for students to succeed through instrumental education is something we take seriously. Whether it be through private instruction, group classes or through the CAS Suzuki Center, students at an early age can begin to explore and begin forming habits of quality and appropriate practice. Our faculty use a wide-variety of teaching techniques and tools to meet the needs of every individual early learner.
Through the art of play, students learn the basics of theatre. These classes are designed to be creative outlets for our young-theatre folk. Developing body awareness, listening and cooperation skills are key to their building their theatre foundation. We focus on imagination and fun, to actively engage students in storytelling from the ground up!
