About our Dance and Musical Theatre Classes
HOW WE TEACH DANCE AND PERFORMING ARTS AT LITTLE BARN?
Kim - our founder - has developed a method of teaching in her 30 years teaching career in NYC and tri-state area that inspires children from every walk/dance of life - because dance is actually just fancy walking!
One of Kim's specialties is teaching very young children, giving first year students the building blocks of dance and tap curriculum and the love of dance and theatre. This also includes listening to the music, feeling and following the beat and always telling a story.
Kim teaches her team to find ways to put the steps of the day in every dance and activity. We repeat these steps until the kids are ready for something new. As a team, we work like an improvisation group and every teacher adds to the dynamic and creativity of the dances and the class. We save singing and acting games for the end of class, which the LB (Little Barn) dancers Love!
Our motto is patience, learning with repetition with lots of love and fun to accomplish and build the child’s dance language and skills, with a solid dance curriculum in a fun and approachable way.
LITTLE BARN'S MISSION
At Little Barn, we believe dance and musical theatre deserve important and inspirational spaces with a wholesome, clever and skill-based curriculum and strong philosophy as we journey along “the yellow brick road…”
The journey will remind us that we are Brave, Smart and Kind in our own ways, showing up each day to become Dancers, Singers and Actors, making friends and finding mentors along the way in our beautiful, creative and nurturing space.
Rainbows, butterflies, lady bugs, birds, the occasional dragonfly (and mystical flying unicorns) capture our imagination - something beyond our reach but present with a song, dance and story. We come alive in our summer farm setting learning, playing and putting on shows till the day is done when the fireflies come out for their magical nightly shows.
