Course Descriptions

Fridays

4:30-5:30 PM

Ages 5-7

Beginning Ballet A

Young students will move from pre-Ballet into a more structured, but still age-appropriate, class format.  Ballet classes will include a short stretching and body-awareness warm-up, short basic barre and center technique and basic progressions via follow-the-leader and across the floor.  Classes will focus on basic Ballet movement vocabulary, body and spatial awareness, class etiquette and learning to string movements together in combinations.  This level is a great preparation for a full beginning class at age 8, as it develops great technical foundations, body awareness and structured class approach while still maintaining elements of class-appropriate and age-appropriate imagery and fun.    

The young dancers may attend class in their usual dance attire, as outlined in the dress code portion of our "Studio Policies" booklet.  Please make sure your dancer has pink Ballet shoes for this class.  Hair should be kept up and out of face via a bun.

Beginning Jazz A

Jazz technique is based on Ballet technique but moves at a faster, more high-energy and contemporary pace.
