SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAM

Our new 2020.21 Fall & Spring schedule is coming soon! Beginning and returning students alike build on the basics of ballet and other dance styles. Classes are challenging and fun! Through the use of props and mime, students learn to express themselves through movement and story. For questions on which level will best suit your child, please contact one of our directors. All students at this level participate in both our Winter & Spring Showcases.

 

FALL/SPRING SEASON August 12 -  May 31 *concluded

*Placement is to be made at the discretion of the directors. Additional technique classes and private lessons are available for students wishing to excel. 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Skill building classes focus on dance technique through engaging exercises and choreography. Students gain the continued foundation needed to take on new challenges at higher levels. The use of props, games and musical instruments aid learning by creating a fun and engaging environment. These classes meet once weekly and have x1 (single discipline) or x2 (ballet/tap) show costumes in the Winter & Spring Showcase.
