About our Week Day Morning Stars Programme

It’s our absolute pleasure to warmly welcome you to the CTA Performing Arts Stars Pre-school programme where children can take their first steps in a journey that can lead to a life-long love and appreciation of dance and the performing arts.

At CTA Performing Arts, children of all ages, shapes and sizes learn to dance, sing and perform. This is a studio where creativity, individuality and self-expression is encouraged and has a community of teachers, students and families who are passionate about performing arts. 

Our goal is to create a positive and happy experience for all of our students. We strive to nurture and develop talent, celebrate the achievements of all students and inspire a love and appreciation of all styles of dance and the arts. We are committed to providing a safe and positive environment in which all students can feel empowered, comfortable and free to express themselves.

A child’s journey can start with us at 15 months and continue until they are eighteen. We have so many pathways a child can choose on their journey with us and our experienced team are here to guide and help you every step of the way. 

When you become part of CTA Performing Arts, you also become part of the community and a place where great lifelong friendships are made for both the dancer and the parent! 

Our professional studios are situated next door to Starbucks and are a great place to meet for a coffee either before or after your child’s dance class.

Dance With Me

15 months – 5 years

If you want to set your child up to reach their best academic potential in the future, helping develop their motor skills is an important start. Research shows that there is a language explosion once a child masters some of the early motor developmental milestones such as sitting, crawling, and especially walking and of course skipping! Why? Important neurological connections are formed with each physical milestone mastered.

Gross Motor Development

Gross Motor Development is vital for cognitive development. The more tummy time, crawling etc, the better that your child will develop their cognitive skills eg. pattern recognition and problem solving. 

Each of those skills provides the foundation for cognitive development. Each act of motor planning helps to improve brain function. Properly matured vestibular and proprioceptive systems allow them to move safely through their environments. Core strength improves their ability to focus as they get older. Choreography, music exposure, and movement patterns set the stage for puzzles and problem solving, and early math skills.

Scapular and core strength are important for fine motor skills, including writing and drawing. Improved foot and ankle strength improve posture while walking and helps prepare them for athletics should they be interested as they grow.

Teach Early Social Skills

These classes will help your little one develop social skills. Our animated, professional dance instructors use interactive language and expressions to engage your little one.

Exposure to a variety of faces, expressions, tones of voice, and directions helps your child learn how to read different situations. It’s helpful and important for children to see what a happy, excited, serious, etc., face looks like on a variety of people.  

Your child is also learning to follow instructions from another adult which helps prepare them for school, sports, and more.
