Toddler (24 months - 3 years)
Preschool Combo Class
Our preschool combo classs includes age-appropriate lessons in ballet, tap, and acrobatics. Each class begins with tap, in which children will learn basics like marches and heel digs, as well as traditional tap steps like shuffles and ball changes. After children change into ballet shoes, they learn simple barre exercises, stretches, and circle games. Finally, the children head to the gym mats to focus on rolls, crab walks, cartwheels, and more for a creative and fun filled class!
Hippity Hop/Acro Combo Class
This class for 3-5 year olds combines Hip hop and acrobatics and is sure to get your little one to “wiggle it just a little bit!” The 45 minute lesson will incorporate a fun, fast moving age appropriate style of hip hop dance with pop music so that your child can increase his/her confidence and express their creativity while being supported in a safe environment with our experienced dance teachers.
Preschool (3 - 4 years)
Kindergarten - 1st Grade Combo Class
Our kindergarten to grade 1 combo class provides instruction in tap, ballet, and jazz dance techniques. The ballet and tap portions of class are built off of the preschool curriculum. Students learn more advanced tap steps, including Maxie Fords and buffalos, while reviewing shuffles and ball changes to enforce the basics. In ballet, students learn the basics of the ballet barre, including plies, tendus, and degages. The jazz section of class will introduce stretching, isolations, and core strengthening exercises. Students in the kindergarten to grade 1 combo receive a well rounded education, laying the foundation for future learning.
