WHO WE ARE
Little People’s Creative Workshop® is a special program for young children (beginning at age 2) designed to give BOYS and GIRLS a chance to experience music, dance, and theatre in a fun and loving atmosphere among their friends. Through music, theatre, and dance children can develop healthy social, physical, and fitness skills that will remain with them the rest of their life. In our class your child will be encouraged to move, pantomime, and stretch in a creative, yet controlled, environment using classical technique that is age-appropriate and specific.
OUR DIRECTORS & INSTRUCTORS
All faculty and staff of LPCW are professionals in the field of dance and have spent many hours training in our curriculum, philosophies, and objectives. Each instructor is CECDI certified and has had many years experience working with young children – as well as much time spent perfecting their teaching and performing skills at universities nationwide.
Daune Pitman, founder and executive director of the Little People’s Creative Workshop®, attended East Carolina University on a full dance scholarship and graduated with a BFA in dance; and then returned to earn her BS in dance education. She has appeared as a principal dancer as well as a soloist with NC Dance Arts Theatre, American College Dance Festival, and East Carolina Dance Theatre; and presently dances alongside her husband in various productions. Aside from her training at ECU, Daune has studied and danced with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center, New York City Ballet, and Tisch School of Performing Arts in New York City; as well as The Joffrey Ballet, NYU, The Louisville Ballet, and Gus Giordano-while spending several years appearing in television commercials and industrial productions for national companies such as Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, GAP, Liz Claiborne, and Yves St. Laurent to name a few. One of Daune’s main joys is young children. She has taught dance and theatre arts for the past 35 years-in schools as well as private studios and universities. She is formerly the editor of a nationally syndicated newsletter about teaching dance/theatre to young children; as well as a published author of books about teaching dance to little ones.
