We want your child to excel and enjoy dancing, so we offer a variety of classes for our students. Aside from the required combination class, there are additional classes your child may take. Students will be assigned class times based on their age and previous experience. At the discretion of the teacher, students may be asked to participate in a different class to best suit their skill set.
Ballet & Tap
This combination class offers students a foundation in two major dance genres for students.
Ballet will cover the proper technique, posture, stretching, movement and performance neccesary.
Tap will introduce the basic skills, movement, rhythm and syncopation, creating a strong tap foundation.
Ballet, tap & Jazz
As students master the technique and certain skills in Ballet and Tap, they will be introduced to Jazz.
This combination class will continue to build upon the Ballet and Tap techniques already learned while introducing a more advanced curriculum, in addition to providing Jazz instruction.
Pre-Pointe will introduce students to the required training and technique for mastering pointe. It's designed to prepare dancers in Ballet for the study of pointe work.
The curriculum is centered around strengthening the feet, ankles and knees while establishing proper technique and learning the pointe process before introducing practice in pointe shoes.
Students in this class must be at least 11 years old to participate. Dancers remain in pre-pointe until they are formally advanced by the instructor to study on pointe.
Pointe class provides classical ballet technique and training to safely prepare dancers for pointe performance. It's allows students to take what they've learned from Pre-Pointe and apply it to class.
Students will be given details on where to purchase their pointe shoes, how to adhere ribbon, and how to appropriately work in the shoes.
Students must be enrolled in a combination class and have completed Pre-Pointe in order to participate.
Additional classes may become available once staff assignments are completed. Check back for more updates. In the past, classes such as Dance Team and Hip Hop have been offered.
