Upper-Elementary Programs (Grades 3-6)

  • Upper-Elementary FUNdamentals Program: Our FUNdamentals performance runs from September – June. Students in the program may choose to be part of our annual Nutcracker or Spring Recital. Performance at Exhale is never mandatory and we will reach out to RSVP for these special opportunities! *Choose the class labeled FUNdamentals to register for a full year, performance class.
  • Upper-Elementary Discovery Program: Is a mini-trial session runs from September 11th – December 2nd. This is a great way for dancers to try our program without making a full year commitment . If your child loves to dance they can easily transition into our FUNdamentals class after the session ends!

Upper-Elementary Classes

  • Pre-Teen Hip-Hop: This class is for dancers in grades 3rd-6th that love to move and execute more athletic movements such as break dancing and tumbling. But, are not looking for foundational dance classes such as jazz, ballet, tap and lyrical. Students in this class will explore the sharp, rhythmic movements that create the hip-hop style.
  • Dance Drama II: This class is for dancers in grades 3-6th that LOVE to act and sing. Students will learn a mini-musical or play to perform in class or on the stage. There will certainly be movement and dance in this class, but theater is the main focus.
  • TJB II and TJL: Tap, Jazz, Ballet II & III (grades 2 -3) and Tap, Jazz, Lyrical (Grades 3-6) is for students that enjoy traditional dance genres and are looking to grow their foundational skills. This program will get them ready to audition for EDYI or stay in our TJL program as a Teen.
  • Youth Performance: This class is only a fundamentals program only and is taken as an addition to our TJB II class. It gives these students extra chances to perform throughout the season. This program is broken into two sessions September-December and January-June. Payments for this program are due in full before the sessions begins.
