Course Description


Ballet:
This ballet is a beginning level class where dancers are introduced to ballet positions and techniques that will build a strong foundation for years to come. Students will increase confidence, develop motor skills, and learn proper dance moves to stretch the body. Our approach is innovative and encouraging for young dancers with big imaginations. Ballet slippers, tights, leotards and tutus are welcomed. This is a drop off class (i.e. parents and caretakers do not participate).

Jazz:
Jazz is a style of dance that finds its roots in ballet, but was enhanced by musical trends, social dances, and the popularization of dance through movies and musicals. These classes place an emphasis on isolating body parts, increased flexibility, and creative dance sequences.

Hip-Hop:
This class is designed to facilitate the best functions of the body. Students work from a warm-up to locomotive floor work, then a cool-down. Moves and choreography will be introduced.
