Recreational Classes Tiny Tots, Pre-K, Primary (K-1) , Elementary, and Teen
Tiny Tots | Ages 3-4 This class is for any 3-year old and first year 4-year old. This class focuses on rhythm, balance, coordination, and focus all while teaching dancers the basic fundamentals of tap and creative movement (1-hour class). Creative Movement is a class taught with a mixture of ballet and jazz movement which provides a medium for self-expression – the core of choreography. Through imagery and imagination the child explores and learns new dance movements.
Pre-K | Ages 5-6 This class will serve as an introduction to tap and simple jazz and ballet movements.
Primary (K-1) | Ages 6-8 We offer the dance disciplines of jazz, tap, and ballet for students in kindergarten through third grade.
30 Min Blocks | Kindergarten - 3rd Grade We offer the dance disciplines of jazz, tap, and ballet for students in kindergarten through third grade. A separate Ballet is taught at the age of second grade. Before that age the jazz class will contain some basic ballet terms. We prefer to wait until the child is physically and mentally ready for the details for proper technique in ballet. These 30 minute blocks are performance classes and learn choreography for shows throughout the year .Building the child’s self–confidence and dedication to mastering a skill through performances is essential in training the whole child.
1 Hour Blocks | 4th Grade and above Our one hour classes are available to students in grade fourth and above and include the dance disciplines of jazz/hip hop, ballet, pointe and tap. As the child progresses in dance the hour block allows us to develop the technical skills that are needed in the more advanced forms of dance. These are performance based classes that work not only on the techniques of the dance discipline enrolled, but provide choreography and class performances . This helps the young dancer develop the important traits of dependability, dedication, self – confidence, and grace. All skills used in everyday life situations.
Elective Classes Pointe, Hip Hop, Theatre, Leaps and Turns, Conditioning, Stalls and Tricks, and Flexibility
Pointe | Previous Ballet Training Required Students that are interested in Pointe must receive approval by the ballet instructor in order to enroll in this class.

Extension Classes (Leaps and Turns, Flexibility, Conditioning, and Acro) The art of dancing can not always fully be achieved in 45-minute to 1-hour classes. A dancer is always perfecting their craft and these classes offer that opportunity.
