Nutcracker Suite - Since we most likely will not be performing at nursing homes this year, I thought it might be fun for the girls to put on a socially distanced Nutcracker Suite. We will learn the choreography in this class. (We can add classes for this at other times)
Pre-Primary - For children ages 2.7 to 3 years old
This class focuses on coordination, rhythm, listening skills and creativity.
Primary Ballet/Creative Movement - For children ages 3-5
In a nurturing environment, children will explore creative and standardized movement. Students are introduced to basic ballet and musicality, while working on their flexibility, as well as exploring their creativity through dance. If you choose the Primary/Tap class, this adds 15 minutes of basic tap to the class.
Ballet 1 - Ages 5-6
In this class children begin to learn a full ballet class, including basic barre, stretching and center exercises.
Ballet 2 - Ages 6-7
This class continues to reinforce the foundations of ballet. If your child has not had ballet one this class is appropriate for the older beginner.
Ballet 3 - Ages 7-9
We continue expanding our repertoire of ballet steps and working on technique.
Ballet 4 - Ages 8-10
Builds on Ballet 3 and starts to introduce more involved combinations of steps.
Advanced Beginner Ballet
We continue working on improving technique and introducing new steps. (This class is appropriate for the older beginner as well.)
New and more complex material will be taught at an accelerated pace.
At this level we combine skills from previous level classes and correlate steps to lengthy and complex combinations with correct technique, extensive terminology.
This class introduces students to basic pointe work. Students must take at least 2 classes a week to study pointe and requires teacher approval
Teen and Adult Ballet
These classes are designed for the older dancer. This is a full ballet class, including barre, stretching and center exercises.
In this class we learn dances to perform at various facilities in the area. Participants must take at least one other class per week. (This class involves outside of class time to participate in these performances and joining this class is making a commitment to the additional time and travel involved. There is also an additional costume required)
Here we introduce the basic steps of the 10 ballroom dances. Then the participants choose which dance to focus on for the remaining classes of the semester.
Musical Theatre/Broadway Dance
This class introduces musical theater dance to students. Emphasis will be on ballet and jazz dance techniques and will include learning Broadway style songs and dance combinations. Jazz or ballet shoes required.
Lyrical dance is a combination of ballet and jazz danced to contemporary music.
This class introduces students to current popular dance forms. They will be introduced to traditional jazz steps as well as hip-hop steps.
These classes teach rhythm, coordination, tap terminology and choreography. Please check with teacher for appropriate level.
