American Dance and Drama Studio in Fresh Meadows is now offering two themed dance classes for young kids as of this month. Princess Ballet is designed for kids 2 and ½ and 3 and ½ years old and Tot-Hop is designed for children ages 3 and 4.
Princess Ballet will take place on Tuesdays at 4:30pm and Saturdays at 9am and Tot-Hop at 4pm on Tuesdays. Both calsses are designed to teach kids the basics of dance and movement in a safe, fun, and interactive setting. In Tot-Hop, students learn the basic movements of hip-hop. In Princess Ballet, kids dance along to familiar princess songs and children’s tunes while working with props, playing parachute games, and learning simple choreography. The classes are not mommy-and-me style.
“We really want to introduce students to a degree of separation while instilling a level of comfort,” says Kim Aistrico, an instructor at American Dance and Drama.
American Dance and Drama has nurtured young, aspiring performers in dancing and acting since 1973. Now with two locations in Middle Village and Flushing, the school continues to offer robust training and recreational programs in acting, dancing, and singing. Both kids and adults can participate in many of the available courses, including voice, drama, commercial-style performance, and musical theatre as well as ballet, pointe, modern, hip-hop, ballroom, belly dancing, and zumba.
In addition to its regular curriculum, the school hosts a number of audition-only companies that perform and compete across the country. Graduates of American Dance and Drama have gone on to be featured in movies, secure recurring and guest roles on TV shows, and perform on numerous Broadway stages.
