* Classes at RAB follow the academic school year; students will graduate to their next level respectively in June. Any advancement to the next level during the school year is solely at the instructor's discretion.

The preschool program provides a progressive program of study for the youngest students. Children will be allowed to imagine, explore, and be creative through movement. They are encouraged to describe emotions and explore imaginative worlds formed by movement and music. Each fundamental movement will be examined and experienced in various contexts. For children to reach their potential as future dance and physical activity participants, solid foundations are laid.

The goals of the Pre-School Program are:

  • To enhance children’s movement abilities and physical fitness
  • To aid in becoming physically and spatially aware
  • To stimulate listening skills
  • To encourage expressive movement
  • To build confidence and self-esteem
  • To encourage children to be cooperative and sociable
