Creative Movement: Ages 3-6 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.
Ballet: Ages 7-12 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.
Jazz/Hip Hop: Ages 7-12 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.
