Children ages 6 & under are on a journey! They are experiencing the wonders of the world everyday. Everything is new, new, new! The dance school is another one of those wonders-yet another place for young minds to explore. They'll touch the mirrors, lose focus, perhaps hang from the barre and enjoy conversations with those around them. This is all a result of positive natural curiosity. These young minds are simply doing as they should: gathering information about the world around them. We are here to help cultivate their creativity, develop a basic understanding of musicality, movement skills and inspiring love for the way they move and the arts of dance. We've developed different varieties of classes for this age group to meet many different personalities and interests of our young dancers.
Ballet class is introduced by dancing at the ballet barre and center woprl. They also will begin the study of ballet terminology, movement of the arms and feet, working through plie and releve and learning of the great stories of classical ballets.
Jazz class teaches the 7 basic movements of stretching, movement in the center and across the floor. There is also jazz terminology that will be taught in this class.
Tap class will teach individual tap steps while learning to build combinations of steps together. Tap is very percussive and is a great way to learn about musicality and counting music. Tap is wonderful for those who wish to make some noise. These classes are perfect for the dance enthusiast.
