Age:   Age is determined by the student’s age as of December 31st of the year they start dance classes.

Class Placement:  Classes are formed by student’s abilities and not necessarily by age or years of training. All children learn at different rates and we teachers pride ourselves in the recognition of each student’s strong and weak points. Please allow us to best serve our students by allowing us to group them accordingly.

Pre-Ballet:   This class is offered for students 2 to 4 yrs. This is a creative movement class, teaching basics of ballet and basic coordination skills. Pre-ballet is taught with the use of props, music, and songs. Please be aware that students may be placed in pre-ballet for two consecutive years based on their age. Pre-ballet will perform in our recital.

Pre-Tap: Ages 4 and 5. Pre-tap is a ½ hour introductory course. Students must be enrolled in pre-ballet to register for pre-tap. Since this is an introductory course, pre-tap cannot be taken alone. This class will perform in our recital.

Ballet and/or Tap: Ages 6 and up. Ballet and tap classes are geared toward the level appropriate for the particular class being taught. Classes are not necessarily based on one age group. Classes are mostly a combination of close ages.

Jazz:  Ages 6 and up. Jazz classes consist of a jazz technique warm-up, stretches, progressions and center combinations.

Acrobatics: Ages 6 & Up. Acrobatics consists of a strengthening warm-up, stretches, and mastering of acrobatic skills. This is not a gymnastics class. Acrobatics is about flexibility and tricks. Students will be placed by ability, not age.

Hip-Hop:  Ages 6 and up. One of our most popular classes! This introduces students to the world of video dance. No previous dance experience is required. This is a great class for teenagers who have never danced before!

Pointe:  Pointe classes are available to ballet students over 12 years of age, with at least 4 consecutive years of ballet training and teacher approval. Students will be evaluated in ballet class.

Lyrical: Ages 8 and up. Students must be enrolled in ballet and jazz to take this class and have completed one year of Jazz. Lyrical is a combination of both ballet and jazz. Lyrical dance is expressive and interprets the meanings of songs. This class includes a jazz warm-up, progressions and center combinations.
Mommy/Daddy & Me – Fantasy Story Dance Class: Girls and boys, just walking to age 4. This is a pre-dance class with a fantasy story theme each week. Stories include Cinderella, Snow White, Wizard of Oz, etc. This class will incorporate story into dance using music, props, and dress up. (*This class is offered only when our schedule allows. Please call or e-mail for current session.)
