Toddler Creative Movement (with parent)

To register for this class, children should be fairly steady when walking. During this class, we will sing, dance, tumble, and play using many engaging activities. Toddlers will be introduced to basic movement elements: big/small, fast/slow, high/low, time, space, and energy. Children will enjoy working with hula hoops, balls, bean bags, rhythm sticks and working on a balance beam. 30 minutes

 

Explorer Classes

These classes expand on the basic elements of movement and music. Skipping and jumping will enhance coordination, while gymnastics help children develop strength and balance. Dramatic play games help children’s emotional and social development. Students also have opportunities to be creative and learn cooperation skills. These classes introduce students to basic technique in ballet, tap, and jazz.

Explorer 3’s for 3 year olds (ballet shoes only) 30 minutes

Explorer 4's - for 4 year olds (ballet and tap shoes) 45 minutes 

Ballet

Ballet is a poised and graceful dance form that requires discipline and patience. Classes are split up into barre, center work, stretch, strengthening and ballet combinations. Instructors will place students according to years studying dance and ability. 45-60 minutes
Pointe - Teacher’s recommendation only

Tap
A great way to brush up, practice and refine tap skills. Classes will include warm up, basic review, speed work, rhythmic exercises and combinations to prepare dancers for more difficult tap repertoire and eventually improvisation in future classes. 30 minutes

Contemporary
Contemporary focuses on teaching dancers about creative expression with the music while concentrating on dance technique. Modern dance allows dancers to use their basic ballet/jazz technique to explore using their body with contemporary music. Students will learn to move with music to tell stories through dance. 45 minutes

Hip Hop
Hip Hop is a “funky” type of dance. It is similar to what is seen in music videos or at concerts. Hip Hop is focused on rhythm and coordination. It concentrates on the beat in the music and just letting your body move. It’s all about having fun and letting loose. 30 or 45 minutes depending on levels

Jazz
Jazz is a fun and upbeat style of dance for those with lots of energy. Our classes include warm-up, across the floor work and center combinations. Students can expect fun, and high-energy music. 30 or 45 minutes depending on levels
