Nurturing a love of dance at a young age sparks a passion for the art form. Creative Dance I & II are classes designed for the very young. These classes are full of fun and dance related activities to keep the child’s interest.


Creative Dance I

(3 & 4 years of age) is a 45 minute class that teaches rhythm and coordination through creative movement. Tap is introduced through simple song and dance steps. To enhance creativity, children will participate in role play with the use of props.  Very basic ballet etiquette is introduced.


Creative Dance II
(4 & 5 years of age) is a 45 minute class that is an extension of Creative I. Child will begin to coordinate movements together and work on flexibility. Focus is on the development of motor skills and emotional expression.  Ballet etiquette is gently taught.



Pre-Ballet and Tap combination class

(6-7y)  Students begin learning basic fundamentals of ballet barre technique and simple steps center floor using terminology necessary for ballet training. Tap fundamentals are also taught at barre and center floor exercises to enhance rhythem and coordination.  Role playing and props are still used at end of class to enhance creativity and self expression. 





Classical Ballet begins at 8 years of age and poise, self-confidence and posture begin to develop through this discipline.  Students begin to have an understanding of  ballet technique and see their accomplishments through the strict discipline that is required.  Students are recommended to take at least two ballet classes per week.  Ballet is the most beneficial for body placement and the best foundation for any other dance form.   As students begin to advance, they will be evaluated by the director and will be moved to the next level.    


Pointe Class


Only when the back, abdominal muscles, legs and feet are strong enough may the student begin pointe work.  A student can be placed on pointe at age 11-12 with proper preparation.  Students are placed on pointe at the discretion of the director. 



This class teaches the student coodination while learning rhythmic combinations.  Students enjoy the quick accomplishment that can be learned through this training. 


Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet.  Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance.



Jazz class offers a freer and less restricted form of dance.  Studetns learn funky and trendy dance steps to Broadway style routines. Dancers are encouraged to add their own personality to make each step unique and fun.  Jazz steps include basic turns including chaines, piques, pirouettes, jazz turns and some ballet turns, to name a few.   Warm-ups and floor exercises are given at the beginning of the class.
