CLASS INFORMATION



Pre-School Ballet & Tap Combination Class

This class includes an introduction to primary level ballet work and tap dancing steps. The class goals are for the student to develop coordination, flexibility, rhythm, body awareness, and to discover that movement is fun.

 

 

Ballet

Emphasis on correct placement and carriage of the body is stressed along with the instilling of a good spirit in each student. Classical ballet is the foundation of all dance movement and is the most important subject to be studied.

 

 

Pointe

This class is a continuation of classical ballet studied and is only offered to selected students in the junior and senior dance company. Work on pointe begins after the students has completed a satisfactory amount of ballet but never before the age of 10 as the feet are still soft and malleable and cannot take the strain and stress of pointe work without injury.

 

 

Tap
