NEW! Tippy Toes: Parent Participation Required! A creative movement class combining aspects of Story Book Ballet & Story Book Dance. Explore movement & rhythm, learn dances and stories with the help of scarves, ribbons, beanbags, and more!
Story Book Ballet: A Ballet-based class with a dash of the theatrical. Students learn basic Ballet positions, body alignment and poise, while working with props and learning how to sequence dance steps using stories.
Classical & Modern Ballet: Classical classes focus on the fundamentals of ballet including body alignment, technique, flexibility, and musicality. Each level builds upon the level previous to it. Promotion to Ballet II and III is based on ability, not age. Students new to the program are welcome to request an evaluation by our Dance Director, Tess Anderson.
Hip Hop: Our high energy, upbeat, and funky street dance class. Classes stress technique and discipline, while encouraging individual style and expression.
Theatrical Jazz: Think Broadway! Our Theatrical Jazz class combines modern dance, lyrical, jazz and hip hop into a class focusing on learning combinations and routines, taught and choreographed by our Dance Instructors!
Performance Camps & Dance Intensives
New Dress Code:
Ballet I - IV -- Pink tights, solid color leotards, pink shoes (if you have black, don't panic, dancers can wear black shoes until new ones are required - the goal is everyone in pink by recital in June), skirts, legwarmers, and dance wraps are allowed. Hair MUST be up off the neck and out of the eyes. Buns are preferred, of course.
Story Book Ballet/Dance/Theatrical Jazz/Hip Hop -- Things they can move in with no sharp edges, buttons, snaps, etc. Ballet shoes, soft soled jazz shoes, or socks are just fine - feet need to be able to slide. Hair should be confined so it isn't in their eyes. NO JEANS!!!!
Hip Hop II -- Things they can move in with no sharp edges, buttons, snaps, etc. Students may start in socks, but will move to bare feet. Hair should be confined so it isn't in their eyes. NO JEANS!!!!
