PRE BALLET

 

Age level: 4- 5 year olds

Please note Ballet is a required class before taking any other style of dance.

 

BALLET

 

Highly technical form of dance with vocabulary based on French terminology. Ballet requires years of training and is the foundation for all other forms of dance. Every ballet class begins at the barre and then moves to the center floor. The goal of each exercise is to learn correct body alignment and proper technique.

EN POINTE

To be in this class dancers are auditioned throughout the year.  Dancers must be taking at least 2 other ballet classes to qualify for pointe class. Ballet requires years of training and is the foundation for all other forms of dance. Every ballet class begins at the barre and then moves to the center floor. The goal of each exercise is to learn correct body alignment and proper technique. 

TAP
 
A form of dance where the shoe has a metal 'tap' on both the toe and heel. The tap shoe strikes the floor creating rhythm and sound. The floor combinations are exercises designed to help students learn proper tap technique for clean and crisp tap sounds.

JAZZ

 

Over time, jazz dancing has evolved from dancing to the style of jazz music in New Orleans, to a combination of classical ballet mixed with steps from American Pop culture. Jazz is typically high energy and designed for entertainment. Class begins with a warm-up, moves to across the floor combinations and ends with a choreographed routine. Each exercise and combination are designed to instill correct body alignment, isolations and proper technique.

Not offered for Pre Levels.

ACRO
Students will work on developing balance and motor skill, while focusing on strength and flexibility. Over years students will progress from summersaults to learning front & back tucks and more.
