This class is for our pre-k crowd and is a great introduction into the world of dance. We cover all genres of dance in this one class with fun funky upbeat music to keep them focused while wearing our ballet shoes to make all their ballerina princess dreams come true! We also incorporate floor work to help them build their muscles and across the floor exercises to develop their fine motor skills!
Ballet is the classical dance form that can be mastered by itself or used as a technical base or supplement to other dance forms. Classes focus on overall body alignment and awareness with emphasis on proper usage of feet and legs and execution of turnout. Carriage and usage of upper torso and arms are also stressed. Traditional barre work, center work and combinations are included in all classes.
Pre-pointe and pointe are integrated into the ballet class depending on the students skill level and muscle and technique development.
Technique, Turns, & Across the Floor is a required class for our upper level ballet and jazz students. This class will allow students the time to truly focus on more advanced technique to continue with their growth in dance.
Classes emphasize the development and strengthening of basic tap technique and terminology highlighting the importance of rhythm and sound. Tap focuses on rhythms and intricate footwork, creating a percussion instrument out of the dancer’s feet.
An exciting and ever evolving dance form full of rhythm, syncopation, passion and life.
