Class Descriptions

Our preschool classes offer our littles with a basic dance foundation.  Dancers are introduced to ballet and tap as well as skills that develop their balance, rhythm, and coordination, all while having FUN!

Ballet 

Known as the foundation of all dance, ballet classes will focus on basic ballet technique, proper body alignment, balance, proper extension, and French terminology. As each class level deepens, classes will continue to focus on basic technique but will also develop movement sequences and musicality.

En pointe (pointe) means "on the tips of the toes."  Pointe focuses on body alignment, placement, and how process of transitioning to and from en pointe. Dancer who have gained an appropriate level of ballet, along with suitable strength and technique may qualify to join pointe. Instructor approval is required before enrollment.

Leaps & Turns-

The focus of this class is just what the name suggests! We will work on strengthening the core which will allow for improved balance and power.  Correct spotting will be taught so dancers will not get "dizzy" while turning as well as deep stretching to improve flexibitly. If you want to leap higher and turn stronger this is the class for you!
