PARENT & TOT
This class is for our tiniest dancers aged 1-2. Instructors lead dancers and their parent/guardian in a fun filled 30 minute class. Each class consists of rhymes, rhythms, creative movement, dance exercises and play. This class is a great way to introduce little dancers to a class setting and begins to teach them to follow instruction and musical cues. Dancers must be accompanied by an adult in this class.
Welcome to dance! Preschool Dance is the perfect intro class for your new dancer. Instructors lead students aged 2-4 through a fun class that starts to build a strong foundation in each dancer. Classes are designed to build coordination, musicality, social skills, independence and creativity. This class is not parent participation.
These fast paced classes focus on technical dance steps. Starting with a warm up and stretch and strengthening exercises, jazz classes build proper alignment and posture for turns, jumps and upbeat choreography.
These classes focus on building a strong foundation in classical ballet training. Dancers work to build postural awareness, coordination and strong technique.
