we teach a variety of Chinese dances: Chinese classical, Chinese Ballet and contemporary, and mostly Chinese folk dances. There are many ethnic groups in China. Each one of them has their own culture and unique style of music and dance. Learning Chinese folk dances is not only to enjoy their beauty but also to learn Chinese culture in a fun way. Meanwhile the body training in dance enhances the development of fine and gross motor skills as children run, skip, leap, stretch, coordinate, isolate and move to the music. Chinese dance is for everyone and not just Asian girls.
The curriculum is designed to gently introduce students to a structured and safe classroom environment while instilling in them the physical and emotional confidence to explore and create. April Rain Dance has been invited to perform around Austin. The stage experiences, while enrich children's life, give them confidence to face diverse audiences. Adult class is great for adults to have exercise, to keep a young body, soft and strong, graceful and charming. It's also a place to develop friendship.
"What heaven confers is called nature. Accordance with this nature is called the way. Cultivating the way is called Education."
Join the April Rain Chinese Education and learn Chinese through group language immersion. Our program delivers complete language immersion in an environment carefully designed to maximize learning speed and effectiveness.
Setting up a group class at April Rain Chinese Education depends on several factors, including enrollment numbers, matching language levels, coinciding program lengths, and the preferences of other students. In order to maintain our school high standards of instruction while allowing students the flexibility to explore other methods of learning, small group classes are generally capped at eight to twelve students. Day to day objectives may include learning new vocabulary words, grammar points, radical sets, word pronunciations, idiomatic expressions, social etiquette, and so on. Short-term students are given a formal Chinese language assessment once every two weeks, and daily informal assessments in the form of homework assignments, in-class questions and games. In sum, we aim to create a fun, creative, interactive, and challenging environment in which children flourish physically, socially and cognitively.
