Ballet/Tap I:

Fri. 9:45-10:30am

Fri. 5:00-5:45pm

Sat. 9:45-10:30am

Pre-Dance: This is a class where students develop fine and gross motor skills, use their imagination and creativity, learn how to line up, wait their turn and other social skills that compliment pre-school curriculum. Classes start out in a circle where we warm up our bodies and create a communal connection. As we make our way to a shape on the floor, we introduce ballet terminology and technique. Stretching on the floor is typically next where we ask the dancers to speak independently and voice their creative imaginations. We review left and right, work on numbers and counting (even introduce different languages) all while encouraging proper placement. If time allows, we will go across the floor and work on our gross motor skills and ballet steps. Jumping, hopping - both feet and on one foot, galloping front and to the side, skipping and doing "jetes" over our dots. Class usually ends with dance games reinforcing eye hand coordination and motor skills or an obstacle course. 

3-5 year olds

Hip Hop Tumbling Tots:

Thurs. 9:30-10:15am

Fri. 5:45-6:30pm

Hip Hop Tumbling Tots: This is a class where we combine the physicality of our pre-dance curriculum and introduce tumbling. Students will develop fine and gross motor skills, use their imagination and creativity, learn how to line up, wait their turn and other social skills that compliment pre-school curriculum. Classes start out in a circle where we warm up our bodies and create a communal connection in addition to stretching to prepare our bodies for movement. As we continue, we introduce hip hop terminology and technique. We review left and right, work on numbers and counting (even introduce different languages) all while encouraging proper placement. We will go across the floor and work on our gross motor skills and show off our personalities. Jumping, hopping - both feet and on one foot, galloping front and to the side, skipping and doing "jetes" over our dots. We will also build strength and balance through obstacle courses. Dancers will be introduced to basic tumbling as well. 

Ballet/Tap I: This class begins as our pre-dance class does where students develop fine and gross motor skills, use their imagination and creativity, learn how to line up, wait their turn and other social skills that compliment pre-school curriculum. Classes start out in a circle where we warm up our bodies and create a communal connection. As we make our way to a shape on the floor, we introduce ballet terminology and technique. Stretching on the floor is typically next where we ask the dancers to speak independently and voice their creative imaginations. We review left and right, work on numbers and counting (even introduce different languages) all while encouraging proper placement. If time allows, we will go across the floor and work on our gross motor skills and ballet steps. Jumping, hopping - both feet and on one foot, galloping front and to the side, skipping and doing "jetes" over our dots. The ballet portion of class usually ends with dance games reinforcing eye hand coordination and motor skills or an obstacle course. We will then introduce tap dance for the last 15 minutes of class. We work on heel drops, toe drops, toe knocks, heel toe walks, shuffles and heel stands. The recital routine for this class will be tap.
