To spark children’s curiosity and courage in exploring the world and themselves, we base a big part of our educational program on art. We want to encourage our little sparrows to never stop learning, imagining, and expressing their ideas and emotions.
Besides being a very popular activity among children, dancing helps them learn rhythmic movement and advance their motoric skills. Dancing builds confidence, focus, and self-discipline – and provides a valuable medium of expression.
We have decided to offer classical ballet because it focuses on strengthening kids’ imagination, agility, and harmony of movement through play and storytelling. The form of ballet helps properly develop their bodies, giving them straight posture and stronger leg and arm muscles.
The program is created and mentored by the principal dancer of the famous Ballet of the Shevchenko Theater in Kyiv, Konstantin Kostyukov – who based the class on the methods of the renowned ballet pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova from St. Petersburg. Tamara Ivanović, the principal dancer of the Ballet of the Serbian National Theater leads the class.
Kids have a natural affinity towards music and rhythm. Music develops their cognitive abilities and helps them better understand and communicate their emotions and ideas. It also enhances their self-confidence, focus, and creativity.
The goal is to enable the kids to learn about basic musical concepts in a fun and engaging way. Our pupils learn how to sing and play different musical instruments suited to their age. Your kid can also attend additional individual piano and singing classes.
We have invited Oleg Kireyev, a world-famous saxophonist, to hold our music workshops. The Grammy-nominated jazz artist will introduce children to various musical instruments and help them fall in love with the creative side of rhythm and sound.
Acting classes are a perfect way to harness and channel the naturally powerful imaginative side of children. The class is designed to help our little sparrows nurture their curiosity and creativity, build confidence and socialize.
By putting themselves in various “pretend” roles and situations, kids learn empathy and get to understand their own emotions on a deeper level. A well-known young actor who graduated from the Faculty of Dramatic Arts of the University of Belgrade, Đorđe Kreća, leads our acting lessons.
We also offer painting and pottery work classes, held separately as a part of the additional offer of our kindergarten. Both classes are led by expert tutors who help our pupils create their very first masterpieces.
Both painting and pottery work lessons focus on enhancing kids’ creativity and self-confidence. Even though all children love painting and pottery work, the classes are especially important to those who prefer to express their emotions and ideas nonverbally.
