This class is for 2 year olds and an accompanying adult. Children experience the joys of tumbling on the mats for an imaginative 30-minute class. With an emphasis on fun and creativity, the class is designed to encourage a child’s natural movement, coordination, and muscle development.
Our popular pre-school dance class consists of song and dance routines which introduce children to tap and ballet. Students learn basic dance steps and terminology, while exercising motor skills. Because children of this age love and need repetition, the same class is repeated a few times before being changed.
Students will learn tumbling skills and tricks that use flexibility, balance, agility, and motor coordination. These elements provide the building blocks necessary for development in dance, gymnastics, cheerleading, and overall fitness/athletics.
Ballet training is the foundation of all forms of dance. It teaches proper placement, alignment, balance, technique, and control. Using classical music, our ballet classes focus on terminology and body positioning in barre and center work.
For the experienced ballet student, pointe is the advancement of ballet class to hard-boxed pointe shoes. The age of the dancer recommended to begin pointe work depends on the level of her technique and the rate of her progress. This class must be upon teacher recommendation and accompany a regular ballet class.
Tap is an exciting and challenging form of dance that produces sound. Dancers use their feet like drums to create rhythmic patterns and beats. Our students learn different styles of tap dance, while concentrating on clear, concise footwork.
Jazz is a form of dance that showcases a dancer's individual style. Our jazz class features fun and energetic jazz movements combined with the latest dance trends. We focus on terminology, flexibility, footwork, leaps, and turns, using a variety of pop, jazz, and rock music.
Lyrical is the balance, control, and technique of ballet blended with the principles of jazz. The lyrics of the music serve as inspiration. Dancers will use fluid movements to interpret a story and/or express strong emotions such as joy, love, etc.
This class uses contemporary, up-tempo hip hop and pop music. Hip hop movements are strong, fast, bouncy, and funky. Dancers will learn how to exercise body control, flexibility, and rhythym, and are encouraged to express themselves with freestyle movement.
