School Year Classes 2017-18
Tumbling – Ages 8-11 See below for further details about Tumbling classes.
Ballet & Tap Combo – Ages 8-11 These classes are essential for students who want to develop their skills in ballet and tap technique. Students will focus on learning technique and combinations as well as developing their own sense of movement style and preferences. In the Ballet classes, students also learn the stories of various famous Ballets, helping the stories that have entertained through the decades come to life! This class is offered with Ballet & Tap in combination only, and students have Ballet and Tap classes each week for a half hour each.
Jazz – Ages 8-11 Jazz for the 8 to 11 year old is a class that teaches the basic fundamentals of jazz, hip hop, & lyrical dance. Students will learn the basics of these various styles by doing skills across the floor and a variety of combinations in the center.
Hip Hop – Ages 8-11 Hip Hop is a fusion of street and break dancing. This class includes a warm-up and time spent on choreography that will keep you moving and expressing yourself in a funky new way!
Musical Theatre – Ages 5-Teen Musical Theatre is a great class for budding performers! The combination of singing, acting, and dancing develops well-rounded artists. Students will learn necessary dance skills and partnering, the art of emoting and “dacting” – dancing/acting, as well as singing skills, all of which will help them on stage, in dance class, and in life.
Dance Team/Poms – Ages 8-11 The students in dance team/poms will have a warm-up that incorporates cardio, stretching, conditioning, and basic dance technique that is used in dance team routines. The students will also learn mini-routines in the styles of pom, hip-hop, kick, and jazz. This class will also focus on the purpose of a dance team, team relationships, leadership and audience. We are really looking forward to preparing our dancers who plan on joining dance teams to be leaders who will stand for integrity and be positive role models among their peers!
