Creative Movement Ages 3-7 Saturdays 1:00pm
This is the perfect class for your young dancers. We focus on creative movement which builds on the necessary gross motor skills needed for primary dance instruction. We use fun, upbeat music to learn basic skills like hopping, skipping, jumping, galloping, and balance coordination. Students will engage in dramatic music movement and learn introductory ballet steps. These include plies, tendu, releve, arabesque, the five positions of the feet, and other introductory dance steps. Creative movement increases mental and physical development and creativity. Dress code: Black Leotard, pink tights, ballet shoes, elastic skirts (optional), and hair pulled back off of face.
Ballet Age 7+ Saturdays 2:00pm
Ballet is the backbone to all forms of dance and is a must for the serious dancer. Dancers will learn classical ballet positions and technique. Serious instruction, with heavy emphasis on technique begins around the age of eight. Barre exercises are of primary concern in the early stages of training so dancers become aware of their center (balance). Dancers eventually work into centre floor exercises and learn classical steps and movements. Dancers will improve their choreography and performance skills. Dress code: Black leotard, pink tights, ballet shoes, skirts (optional), and hair pulled back off of face.
Jazz/Hip Hop Ages 7-12 Saturdays 3:00pm
Jazz lays the groundwork for technique in upbeat dancing. Students will learn a variety of dance combinations, jumps and turns. This class is a must for students wanting to learn the fundamentals of classic jazz technique. The music selection ranges from popular top 40 hits of various decades combined with Hip Hop. Dancers will Learn the latest new moves like seen on MTV, current music videos, and L.A.’s coolest street style dance. Hip-Hop is the newest trend in dance. Students will learn what it takes to make basic dance moves look hip and funky as they move to upbeat techno mixes with strong base.
