| Combination Classes for Ages 3-6:
This program includes ballet and tap for the beginner students taught in a nurturing environment making dance a fun experience. It provides the young dancer with a strong foundation in dance and movement . The class introduces students to the basic elements of dance including locomotor movements (hopping, skipping, jumping), beat and time, musical rhythm, simplified ballet steps, limbering exercises, coordination skills, left and right discrimination and patterns of movement. Integrated with these physical concepts are the intellectual concepts of self-awareness, creative expression, teamwork, and self-confidence. Students will also learn the basics of classroom behavior and manners.
A classical form of dance that provides a strong, solid technical base for all other dance forms. These very technical classes consist of barre, center floor, and progressions across the floor. One hour ballet classes are offered for ages 6 and up for all levels.
Fun, upbeat style of dance that stems from ballet and combines today’s stylish moves with energetic, popular music. Our jazz classes take many forms from classical to theatrical to lyrical. Classes usually begin with a warm-up, followed by technique, across the floor combinations and choreography. One hour jazz classes are offered for ages 6 and up, beginner thru advanced.

“What we hope ever to do with ease, we must first learn to do with diligence”
Due to the wide variety of curriculums taught from school to school please refer to the general guidelines listed below to help understand our levels of progression.
These are approximate level progressions, children may progress at different rates. Levels do overlap slightly depending on how much training they've had in those years. (I.e. 1 jazz class vs. 1 jazz, 1 ballet, 1 lyrical, 1 acrobatics) Combination/preschool classes are not counted as years of experience. Placement will ultimately be determined by directors in the best interests of your child upon registration.
GENERAL GUIDLINES FOR LEVEL PROGRESSIONS
