4 year olds thru 1st grade
(Dancers must be 4 years old by October 1st) These combination classes will include ballet, tap and tumbling. Dancers will learn basic skills and terminology in ballet and focus on beginning steps and rhythms in tap while gaining upper body strength in tumbling. (This is a 45 minute class)
(2nd grade and up) The foundation for most forms of dance. This classical style and technique allows the dancer to understand posture, body alignment, flexibility, coordination and balance while learning focus and discipline. This artistic style is done with grace, fluidity and often tells a story. We encourage taking ballet to compliment your other dance classes.
(2nd grade and up) A style in which the rhythm is audibly tapped out with clarity and articulation with the toes and heels while wearing tap shoes.
(2nd grade and up) Dynamic movement focusing on flexibility, isolations, leaps and style using clean lines and performed to upbeat or fast-paced music.
(5th grade and up) An urban street style of energetic movement including such styles as funk, popping and tutting as well as self-expression.
(2nd grade and up) This class will explore acting, singing, and dancing to favorite music from Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, Bye Bye Birdie, and many, many more. This class will also learn about Broadway shows, choreographers and their styles such as Bob Fosse (Chicago & Pippin), and Jerome Robbins (Westside Story & Fiddler on the Roof).
(on recommendation of teacher) Students will expand their classical ballet vocabulary and knowledge while being introduced to more advanced and intricate patterns and sequences of steps “en pointe”. Pointe classes are longer and students are required to be enrolled in a second ballet class.
