Classes are off to a GREAT start at Forevermore and it has been SO wonderful to see our space filled with happy, hardworking dancers for our 13th season! I’m thrilled to be able to spend so much time in the classroom working with a wide age span of our students this year, I’m overjoyed at how dedicated, eager, and focused our students are- there really is some AWESOME learning happening in all of our classrooms and an outstanding team of educators and administrators making all of this possible. In addition to kicking off the new season of dance, Fall also brings some additional FUN for our dancers!
We are also excited about our upcoming Stage Door Connections Workshop with a cast member from Broadway in Chicago’s tour of Annie.

Feature on our Creative Movement Program:
At Forevermore we teach a unique ballet based arts enrichment curriculum for our little ones written by Ms. Kerrie and lead by our new head children’s teacher, Ms. Ellen. The precious little ones may look like they are just playing and having fun- but they are doing more than just having fun, they are busy developing important skills to help them succeed not only in future dance classes, but in all of their learning endeavors.
The Creative Movement program uses monthly themes to reinforce and teach the following curricular objectives: Understand class procedures and etiquette, such as taking turns while waiting in line; Create Round, Straight, and Curvy shapes at Low, Middle, and High levels; Be able to identify opposites; Apply the concepts of Over, Under, Around, and Through in movement; Accurately demonstrate non-locomotor /axial movements: Stretch, Bend, Twist, Turn, Rise, Fall, Swing; Accurately demonstrate the eight basic locomotor movements: Walk, Run, Hop, Jump, Leap, Gallop, Slide, and Skip while traveling forward, backward, sideways, diagonally, and turning; Demonstrate accuracy in moving to a musical beat and responding to tempo changes; Demonstrate the ability to define and maintain personal space; Be able to work individually, with partners, and in a group; Recognize and identify a variety of composers and where they are from.
We are joyful and grateful to serve all of our students and filled with passion about the value arts enrichment and creative movement provides children.
