CLASSES FOR CHILDREN
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.
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.
