Tikvah music and dance classes teach children a variety of creative arts, helping them to develop as individuals through exploration and self-expression.
Participants learn dance styles like ballroom, contemporary, folk, hip-hop and Israel, sing songs in English, Russian, Hebrew and Yiddish and create art holiday-inspired art projects. Each week concludes in a Shabbat celebration and each school semester culminates in a performance attended by friends and family.
Tikvah Russian language classes help children develop speaking, reading and writing skills. Children learn about Russian culture and literature through well-known fairy tales, stories, poems and books. Age-appropriate lessons increase in difficulty as students’ skills progress. Advanced students work projects throughout the semesters that culminate in an end-of-year spring performance.
Tikvah Piano classes for children or adults will give you the opportunity to learn how to play piano. Classes are offered on a weekly basis. Register for trials (maximum of 2) or monthly classes below, and coordinate class time by contacting Yanina Nemirovskaya at email@example.com or 415.292.1239.
Each year, the students work culminates in a stage performance filled with music and dancing. Below are some highlight from past performances.
Tikvah starts on September 11, 2021. We’ve kept the Tikvah spirit alive as we continued to learn, practice, and have fun together in online classes! Below is our spring online performance based on the poems of Ovsey Driz:
Music: Children learn melody, pitch and rhythm while building a repertoire of joyful songs. They develop listening techniques and explore different musical styles.
Dance: Children receive instruction in movement, elementary ballet, rhythmic structure and dance appreciation. Classes include warm-up and floor movement with an emphasis on technique, creativity, style and self-expression. Children practice ballroom, contemporary, folk and hip-hop.
Arts & Crafts: Children explore their creativity through a variety of projects related to Jewish, American and Russian holidays and themes, learning composition and basic color theory and design.
