Creative Movement
(ages 3)

During the warm-up portion of the class the young dancers will be encouraged to use their imagination, creativity and, most of all, have fun!

Pre-Combo (Ballet/Tap)
(ages 4-5)

An age-specific 45-minute class containing ballet and tap with some acrobatic movement for dancers to help inspire movement and creativity within a positive dance environment.

The use of fun, age appropriate music engages the young dancers' minds and bodies. The use of props and fun games such as the "freeze dance" makes the end of class the most fun!

Ballet

Ballet is a beautiful yet difficult theatrical art form. Students will start class with barre exercises (usually danced to classical music), to train their bodies to dance with the strength and grace unique to ballet. Students will then move to the center floor to learn conventional poses and steps, combined with light flowing figures such as leaps and turns. Ballet is the basis for all other forms of dance. Ballet is highly recommended for students of any other discipline including gymnastics, ice-skating, and cheerleading.

Dress Code
Girls: Black leotard, pink tights, and pink leather ballet shoes. Short dance skirts are permitted (as long as the skirt is not a distraction).

Jazz

Jazz is a more free-formed style of dance than Ballet but will also include stretches, barre work, and center floor combinations. Rhythm, upon which all dance forms depend, is particularly integral to jazz dance. The first half of class consists of exercises to stretch and tone muscles and develop support for proper stress-free alignment of the skeletal structure. Using jazz, soul, R&B, ethnic and pop music, jazz classes are a great workout and a fun way to release tension while attaining a body awareness that can be applied to everyday activities.

Dress Code
