ABOUT THE DANCE PROGRAM
GO BANANAS Dancing LLC is thrilled to be turning 10 years old this year!!! Back in 2009 Susannah Keefe established GO BANANAS Dancing as an enrichment program in local preschools providing classes in Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet. Over the years we have grown--and so have our students! Currently, we teach over 35 classes per week including Ballet, Tap and Hip Hop & Jazz! Most classes are offered through the Parks & Recreation Departments in Arlington, Alexandria and Falls Church, Virginia.
We focus on FUN and give kids the opportunity to exercise from head to toe to get the large muscle activity that is so critical to their development. We practice important life skills like listening, following directions and taking turns. Our routines are geared towards helping our students boost their self-esteem and understand rhythm and musicality.
The goal of our early Ballet program is to create a welcoming, non-competitive environment that allows children to try Ballet before they take the next step into the serious, highly structured classes for ages 7 and up at Ballet studios. With GO BANANAS Dancing, kids truly get to experience the joy of dance!
