For our youngest students’ first steps into the dance world, we offer specialized, developmentally appropriate programs: Mom & Me, Fantasy Ballet, Tiny Tappers and Jr. Hip Hoppers. During each fun filled 15 week session, dance terminology, improvisation and character work are introduced through magical fairy tales and classic children’s stories. Each small group experiences a series of creative activities that are designed to encourage imagination, gross and fine motor skills, rhythm, musicality and spacial awareness. Props, instruments and costumes are often used to enhance the fundamental instruction. They have their own special performance at the conclusion of each session in a more relaxed environment, designed to be a stress free, and a happy experience for the young performer and family.
For Children & Teens: Our Ballet classes are built upon excellence established by the Royal Academy of Dancing, an international organization with over 90 years of dedication to quality in Ballet education. The Academy’s syllabus is known worldwide for being particularly sensitive to the training of young children. Ballet classes incorporate classical training, character work and free movement to help students develop confidence and a sense of self expression. Pointe, pas de deux and repertoire are also included in the well rounded syllabus.
Our innovative Jazz, Hip Hop and Tap classes are on the cutting edge combining traditional techniques with today’s latest styles. Modern, Lyrical, and Musical Theatre classes are incorporated to give the student the most exciting, versatile, and extensive training available.
