CLASSES WE OFFER
Preschool and Kinder Ballet are also sometimes called creative movement class and is a student’s first introduction to the dance world. We prefer to start students at the age of 4 when students are ready to be in a classroom like setting and listen to the teacher for a 45 minute period of time. We will cover the very beginnings of ballet basics, but make sure to leave lots of time for fun things such as jumping like a frog or flying like a butterfly.
Jazz classes are for students ages 6 and up. Jazz class is more upbeat than ballet and students will learn various things including turns, kicks, and jumps. This is a great class for those who would like to try out for a cheer or dance team one day. Because we are a family oriented school and are only open 4 days a week, jazz class is held immediately following ballet class to save on warm up time. Students wanting to enroll in jazz class are required to take the ballet class beforehand because warm ups and stretching will have been done in ballet class and will not be repeated in jazz class. This means we can shorten jazz class time to 30 minutes for levels 1 &2 and 45 minutes for levels 3 through 5 and it leaves more family time for both students and faculty!
Beginning and Intermediate Ballet classes are for students ages 6 on up who are ready to learn the technique and terminology of ballet. In class we will do barre and center work while focusing on turn out, discipline, balance, grace, and coordination. We invite all students of various levels into Beg/Int class divided by age level and ability.
Advanced Ballet classes are for students ages 10 on up who are ready to further advance their ballet technique and skills. This class is by teacher invitation only and is required to be taken along with the Beg/Int ballet class for a total of 2 ballet classes a week. Students thinking about eventually taking pre-pointe and pointe must take this class.
