• Storybook Fascination Imagination

    Class Description
  • Broadway Exploration’s Storybook Fascination Imagination combines acting, play, improv and storybooks!  Storybook Fascination Imagination is designed as an interactive, play-time theatre class with a goal to introduce acting, improv and to toddlers with the help of our favorite fairy tales and picture books.  Class Flow is designed by the ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum with the whole child in mind and has been created around a child’s cognitive, language, social and motor development to form the 5 Methods of Dance and Performance Arts™. Each week, we read a different picture book and ask the students to reenact each page through interactive and cooperative play. For example, if reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears, we will move and play as if we were Goldilocks eating porridge how would we react if the porridge is too hot or too cold? What about if it is just right? Each week, the class structure remains the same with the reading of a storybook.  As we turn each page we explore the contents and characters as we move, act and play out each page of the storybook. Children are nurtured by their instructor through a positive “Yes!” environment, and the small class size ensures the personal attention needed at this stage of learning. Storybook Fascination Imagination classes include participation in the Dance Exploration, LLC ‘Dance to Learn!’® at Home with Me™ Program!
