CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

PETITE - LEVEL 1 (3-4.5 YEARS)

Captivating classes encourage group participation and build confidence through engaging activities and exercises. Children gain the foundation needed to take on new challenges at higher levels. The use of props and musical instruments aid learning by creating a fun and imaginative environment. Young children learn the best when they are having fun and we are having tons of it in these classes. This ballet/tap combo class meets 45 minutes weekly and has x2 show dances/costumes in each winter and spring performance. 

PETITE - LEVEL 2 (4.5-6 YEARS)

In this next level, there is a stronger emphasis on technique, memorization of patterns and expressions through the use of props and wonderful music while still maintaining a fun and imaginative environment. Students learn fundamental acrobatic technique to increase flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, endurance, timing, body awareness, self-discipline, and confidence. This ballet/tap/tumble combo class meets 1 hour weekly and has x2 show dances/costumes in each winter and spring performance.

PETITE HIP HOP (4-6 YEARS)

Add a little funk! An introduction to hip hop specially designed for our youngest tiny dancers. This high energy class is an integration of hip hop music and dance style! Always appropriate, parents can count on age-appropriate music and movement in class and performance. In order to get the best results, this 45-minute class is best experienced with a PETITE 1 or 2 ballet/tap or tumble companion class. This hip hop dance class meets 45 minutes weekly and has x1 show dance/costume in each winter and spring performance.
