Class Descriptions:

PRESCHOOL: (Age 3-5)
Children will begin to learn the foundation of dance and movement.  They will begin to explore the use of their fine and large motor skills with a focus on rhythm and fun. Students will also learn the expectations of being in a dance class.  Dancers will finish the session knowing how to take turns, listen to directions and follow/repeat short dance patterns.

PRE-K:  (Ages 4&5)
Children will gain strength, knowledge, and skills that will help prepare them for Kindergarten.  They will work on perfecting the use of their fine and large motor skills with a focus on rhythm and FUN.  Dancers will finish the season understanding classroom etiquette, how to retain/repeat dance patterns, and the importance of being a good friend/teammate!

KINDERGARTEN:
This class is meant for children who are in Kindergarten.   Dancers will begin to explore more intricate movements, rhythms, and patterns.  They will also begin to learn movements that will prepare them for a more advanced ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and hip-hop class.  Students will learn dance terminology and gain an understanding of how to move technically, and more important, safely.

Tap/Jazz/Ballet (TJB) I:  (Grades 1&2)
This class is meant for dancers who are in 1st and 2nd grades.  Dancers will participate in a  structured ballet, jazz, and tap class.  Students will gain new dance vocabulary (plie, tendu, degage, grande jete, pivot, jazz square, shuffle, flap, etc), and begin to do barre, center, and across the floor work.  The class will be focused on posture, strength and moving in a technical, safe way.  It is a fun, high energy class that prepares students for our TJB II or paraprofessional program.

 

Pre-Teen Hip-Hop & Tumbling for Dancers:  (Grades 4th-6th)
During this class dancers will explore the intricate rhythms and sharp movements of hip-hop, while growing their tumbling skills and strength.  The class will begin with a basic body warm-up and will be followed by learning hip-hop choreography. Dancers will finish the class by building their tumbling skills.  This is not a gymnastics class, it aligns more closely with ‘acro’.  It is meant to complement our hip-hop syllabus and philosophy.  This class is fun, high-energy, and a fantastic way to exercise.

Pre-Teen Contemporary:  (Grades 4th-6th)
Dancers will participate in a contemporary class.  During this class dancers will explore the soft, emotional movements of contemporary dance.  They will study the foundation of ballet, jazz, and modern so they can fuse the genres to create this new-age contemporary style of dance.
