Education through dance, motor development, tumbling, and pre-ballet or tap (ages 4-5 for tap) is blended with numbers, colors, shapes, words, and music. Through this program the development of dance etiquette transpires, and prepares the young dancer for more advanced technical classes. This class is for first & second year dancers. Dancers must be potty trained.

This level is geared toward teaching children the discipline of classes, terminology, memorization of choreography, and correct body placement & lines. The classes are offered in Tap/Ballet, Jazz/Hip Hop and Musical Theatre. This level is appropriate for first, second and third year dancers.

Following Beginner level, this level will strongly focus on the knowledge of terminology of French Ballet terms, with attention to the details of body positions. This will mean a more advanced paced class setting to prepare for Level I. The classes are offered in Tap/Ballet, Jazz/Hip Hop and Musical Theatre.

Furthering the development of flexibility, terminology, memorization of choreography, and more difficult technique, this is the start of our program during which we like to see more focus out of our dancers. They will begin learning to reverse choreography from the right side to leading with the left. We highly recommend Ballet in conjunction with any other genera of dance, as this will create discipline in the class atmosphere and help with the correct body placement which flows into Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, and Hip Hop. The classes are offered in Tap/Ballet, Jazz/Hip Hop, as well as Lyrical, ACRO and Musical Theatre.

Dancers at Level II should know all terminology for dance. They should be working on Pirouettes, all leaps, and be able to memorize choreography and pick up quickly on new skills. Classes available at this level are Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Musical Theatre and Acro

 

These classes will focus on the basics of Level I & II to prepare them to move into Level IV including details of progressions and reversal of choreography. We recommend 2 to 3 years training at Level III and Level IV. Classes available at this age are Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pre Pointe, Pointe, Ballet Technique, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Musical Theatre and Acro

Dancers should have a minimum of 6 years of dance experience to enroll in Level V. Previous Ballet experience (recommended 3 to 4 years) is recommended to keep up with this level. Level V moves quickly with Choreography and skills. Dancers should be able to do the following skills: Double Pirouettes, Switch Leaps, Center Leaps, Pique Turns, and all reversal of progressions and choreography. Classes available at this age are Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pre Pointe, Pointe, Ballet Technique, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Musical Theatre and Acro

Instructor Approval required. This level is designed for a higher training level. Dancers in this level should have at least 8 to 10 years of training. This level will be taught at a collegiate pace. Moving quickly through progressions and reversal of choreography, dancers are expected to keep up with the pace of the class.
