Classes

We offer five different classes, based on age and interest:
Creative Dance
Ages 3-6

In this class, children experience the joy of movement, discover how their bodies move, and develop a language of movement as they explore the basic elements of dance. Using different kinds of music, we create activities and exercises to develop co-ordination, flexibility, strength, balance, and such locomotor movements as walking, running, jumping, hopping, skipping, galloping, and leaping. This class encourages creativity, imagination, and self-expression. It provides a good foundation for further work in dance.

Pre-Ballet
Ages 6-7

In this class, besides continuing our work on all elements of creative dance, we begin introducing technique for basic ballet. Students continue learning principles of choreography and have opportunities to create dances.

Modern Ballet I, II, III​
Ages 6-11

These classes are for children who have some dance experience. A higher level of concentration is required. In each session we begin with a technical warm-up and then work on many different movement combinations. The children’s musicality and knowledge of choreography are also further developed.

Beginning Tap
Suggested for 2nd and 3rd grade students

Students will develop their coordination and rhythm through this introduction to Broadway style tap dancing. As the year progresses, they will add a variety of fundamental steps to their repertoire and increase their speed and accuracy. We will combine what we learn into fun choreography to be performed at the yearend recital.

Beginning/Intermediate Tap
Suggested for 3th to 5th grade students

Although students do not need prior tap experience to join this class, dance experience is highly recommended. It will move along faster than the beginning class. As students learn new combinations, they will increase their speed and accuracy and once they have a repertoire of steps, they will have the chance to improvise, developing their musicianship. We will then prepare to dazzle the audience at the yearend recital.

Intermediate Tap
Suggested for 4th to 6th grade students

Students with tap experience will develop their coordination and rhythm as they explore both Broadway and Rhythm style tap. As students learn new combinations, they will increase their speed and accuracy and once they have a repertoire of steps, they will have the chance to improvise, developing their musicianship. Students will have the opportunity to share their accomplishments at our year end recital.
