Students age 3 through adult are welcome.
Combination Classes introduce preschool and kindergarten children to the fundamental techniques in ballet, tap, tumbling, and creative movement, while nurturing a child’s self-esteem, creative expression, and musicality.
Ballet includes barre work, stretches, steps, leaps, turns, and combinations (allegro and adagio) in Cecchitti and Russian techniques. French dance terminology is taught and used, and pointe work may be included depending on the individual student technical and physical readiness.
Modern is a term used to describe free-form contemporary dance. Modern dance centers on a dancer’s or choreographer’s own interpretations instead of structured steps, as in traditional ballet dancing.
Jazz consists of center-floor stretches, across-the-floor progressions, and lyrical as well as contemporary movements. A combination of jazz and modern styles and techniques are used in class and performances.
Tap includes ankle and foot warm-ups, steps, and combinations creating various rhythms and floor patterns to both classical and contemporary tap music.
Hip Hop is a contemporary style of jazz developed by youth on the streets of America. It is a style of dance commonly seen in today’s music videos.
Placement of students in classes is based on age and years of experience, as well as size, skill level, coordination, musicality, concentration, and maturity in accepting corrections.
Dress Code: For females, each class level requires a specific solid-colored leotard or unitard. Males wear a form-fitting white T-shirt and black dance pants. Details regarding student class color and other dress code requirements are provided upon registration.
