Classes and Levels

 

BeginnersWe offer a variety of classes designed to meet the interests and abilities of students. Beginners and babies are introduced to several dance areas in combination classes where basic tap, ballet and jazz are taught.

 

Intermediates As the student masters the basics and matures they move into the intermediate level and have the option of exploring the more advanced areas of ballet (pre-pointe, pointe); jazz  (lyrical and contemporary) and tap (rhythm and Broadway style tap).

 

Advanced Advanced students have the opportunity to expand their dance skills through extended classes in tap, ballet and jazz. These classes also expose them to other dance styles such as contemporary, hip hop, and musical theater.

 

Performing/Competition Teams – For students who want more challenge and are suited for a more intense curriculum, they can audition for one of our Performance teams. These students typically take 4-5 lasses per week  and participate in extra workshops, conventions, performances and competitions.

 

Adult Dancers Adults have fun and get lots of exercise in a fast-paced 60 minute combination tap and jazz class. If you want in depth training in a particular area, adult beginner level tap, ballet or jazz classes are available. Stay tuned- we will add more adults level classes as the interest demands.Special Rates for Adult Classes

Classes

Preschool Dance

We now offer our same high quality instruction at a all inclusive price for young dancers.

 

Mommy & Me and Pre- Dance students learn elementary concepts of dance such as counting, spacing, ballet positions and fundamentals of tap and rhythm. They also work on spatial and body awareness.

The Preschool program helps young children develop the confidence and independence necessary to be successful in our regular dance program.

Preschoolers have their own recital in a smaller, well lit environment which encourages them to be comfortable performing before an audience.

Combination Classes

Combination classes are the core of our beginner/intermediate program. Dancers learn dance fundamentals while exploring multiple dance genres and learning to express themselves in various dance forms.

Tumbling classes are for students age 4 and up. Flexibility and strength exercises form the basis of this program. Children are taught fundamentals of standard tumbling moves from forward rolls through advanced moves like handsprings and aerials.
