Fall 2024 - Spring 2025 Classes

Ages 20 months & Up Class Options
U & Me  *  Monday 6:30-7 pm

$45/Month

Shoes: Pink Ballet (Black for Boys)
This is a 30 minute class which meets once each week and is designed for

children ages 20 months and up who are not ready to be left alone in class.

Each dancer is accompanied by one adult each week, although it does not

always need to be the same person. They perform together in the show. 

U & ME is a wonderful introduction to dance classes.

Ages 3-4 Class Options
Creative Dance  *  Monday 5:15-5:45 pm  
$44/Month 

Shoes: Pink Ballet (Black for Boys) 

This 30 minute class meets once per week and is designed for pre-school

children ages 3-4. Each dance-song taught has a specific movement and/or

rhythmic purpose. As the year progresses, the movements learned in the

dance-songs will be combined together and used in a personality song.

They will rehearse entrances and exits along with their song for a concert

performance. As they are learning to "dance," there is an important underlying

emphasis on strengthening and  limbering their bodies to build a dancer body.

In this class there is never a "wrong" dance movement. Their own movement is

a necessary and purposeful part of their dance learning. 



Ages 4-5 Class Options
Ballet-Tap  *  Monday 5:45-6:30 pm

$47/Month  

Shoes: Pink Ballet & White Tap (Black for Boys)
This Combination Class is a 45 minute class that meets once per week for

students in kindergarten and older, or for those who have a creative dance

class background.

Ballet - time is taken to stretch, limber, and strengthen the body. The student

will be learning fun dance-songs using plie', tendu, passe', releve', and turns.

These songs use Ballet and rhythmic movements necessary in learning Ballet

combinations. As the year progresses, the movements learned at the barre

and on the floor will be combined and choreographed in a dance.

Tap - students practice the fundamental steps in every class in order that they

develop skill in hitting the dance floor sharply for a clear sound and in perfect

time to the music. We adapt the Tap steps into a personality song for

performance.

$66/Month

Shoes: Pink Ballet, Black Tap, Tan Jazz


This class is a 1 ½ hour class which meets once each week. Every class aims to stretch, limber, and strengthen the body, as well as work on technique by using steps, combinations, and turns.

Ballet - class starts at the barre warming up the feet and body. Plie', tendu, degage', develope', attitude, arabesque, balance', grande battement, and many other Ballet movements are combined at the appropriate level and speed being taught. On the floor, steps are taught (using the barre technique) and are combined with varied musical rhythms and speeds corresponding to the class

level. Ballet is a very difficult, precise, and technical art form, but with patience

and dedication every student can benefit.

Jazz - explores the new styles of movement that erupt daily. Styles vary with the teacher and include a warm-up, technique and cool-down. Jazz class students

learn body isolation, across-the-floor movements, center floor movements and turns. The benefits of Jazz dance are similar to Ballet, but the music and style are different. Styles learned are combined into a dance and performed in the concerts.

Tap - uses a graded series. When the barre and floor combinations at each level

are completed, a Tap routine of that level is taught. In children's classes, more

than one routine is learned before advancing to the next level.
