The 2023-2024 Season starts on September 7th, 2023 and runs through late May 2024!
These classes are designed for those students just starting their dance training as well as those wanting to improve their dancing ability and technique. Students have the opportunity to build a solid dance foundation in a positive, non-competitive atmosphere.
Boys and girls will have a lot of fun while moving to age appropriate music. Students will get a “jump start” on developing their gross motor skills, which is important in dance as well as other sports. An adult is encouraged to join the class until the child feels ready to attend alone. Performing in recital is optional for this level and will be discussed as a class.
Children in this class will focus on following directions while learning creative movements. Students at this level will be introduced to ballet and tap basics. The students will do a tap dance (and finale) in the spring recital, but will work on both styles in class.
Age 4 & PreK 5
Four-year-old and Pre-Kindergarten five-year-old students are ready for more complex combinations. Girls and boys will go beyond the basics in ballet and tap. Students at this level will perform both a ballet and a tap dance in the recital, along with finale
Children who have started school have a much longer attention span and are able to focus longer. Kids at this level will develop their skills and technique in ballet, tap, and jazz. Students will learn dance terminology and definitions that are age appropriate for their level. These students will perform three dances in recital: jazz, tap, and ballet as well as an studio hip-hop dance and finale.
