improvisation, animals...and much more! Classes meet one time per week for forty-five minutes September through May concluding with The Spring Performance.
Preballet: Ages 5-6
Preballet is designed for the dancer age five through six. This structured class introduces the basics of academic ballet work, musicality, and movement vocabulary. This class ignites imagination while encouraging trust in their movement choices. Classes meet one time per week for forty-five minutes September through May concluding with The Spring Performance.
Modern dance is a more relaxed, free style of dance, which plays upon
emotions, moods, and designing of unique steps in addition to technique.
Four levels of ballet give special attention to correct body placement for classical dance. All levels incorporate stretching and strengthening in preparation for the wonderful years of dance ahead. Movement vocabulary is expanded with musical phrasing emphasized. Students grow individually at their own rate being placed at the proper level. Ballet 4 gives the opportunity to experience pointe work for the serious dancer demanding strength, commitment, and focus. Dancers are encouraged to attend summer programs, participate in master classes, or join performing ensembles. Students attend one to four classes per week September through May concluding with The Spring Performance.
