KIDS CLASSES

BALLET I (5-7 yrs)

This class is our first formal introduction to Ballet class. Students in Level I Ballet are taught proper body placement, posture, alignment, barre and center floor work, along with across the floor combinations. Beginner classes introduce vocabulary and classical ballet technique. All students are encouraged to study ballet, as it is the foundation of all other dance styles and facilitates further success in these disciplines. International Dance Acclaim Syllabus is incorporated into this level. Students attending Lyrical Class are required to attend one Ballet Class per week.


LYRICAL I (5-7 yrs)

This is the perfect class for students who wish to explore the combination of dance technique and the art of expressive movement. Lyrical is a style of dance that uses the emotion and mood of the music to elicit movements from the dancers. It is a fusion of Classical Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary. Students have a warm up focusing on core strength, flexibility, and movement of the back. The class includes floor work, progressions, and center combinations that are performed to music with lyrics to inspire the movements. Any student attending Lyrical Level I is required to also attend one dance technique class of Classical Ballet or Jazz per week in order to build the strong foundation that is required to perform Lyrical routines.


JAZZ I (5-7 yrs)

This class is fun and energetic. It is a great class to introduce students to explore their individual style and build confidence through movement. Jazz Level I Classes focus on technical elements such as kicks, leaps, turns, splits, and isolations. Classes include stretch and strengthening exercises, floor work, and across the floor progressions in addition to a center floor combination. Dance combinations will be performed at the end of each class in small groups for fellow students. Occasionally choreography will be added each week in order to practice remembering steps and building upon them from week to week. Other times a brand new dance routine will be taught. Classes will incorporate Modern and Broadway Jazz styles.


HIP HOP / TAP COMBO I (5-7 yrs)

This is the perfect Combo Class for dancers wanting to explore more than one dance style. The first section of the class will be dedicated to Hip Hop- a style that combines street dance with funk and jazz, similar to what you would see in televised dance performances or music videos. Choreography will be age appropriate and non-suggestive. Students will learn the importance of isolations and dynamics to execute funk movements. The second section of the class will focus on Tap- involving rhythm, dynamics, and varying sounds. Tappers will have a graduated warm-up to loosen their ankles and knees for proper execution of progressions across the floor and skills in the center.


BALLET II (8-11 yrs)

This class is our Level II Ballet Class. Students continue to work on proper body placement, posture, alignment, barre and center floor work, along with across the floor combinations.  These classes expand Classical Ballet vocabulary and strengthen technique. Level II Ballet introduces adagio and grande allegro work, and combinations using balance, strength, and style. All students are encouraged to study ballet, as it is the foundation of all other dance styles and facilitates further success in these disciplines.
