Pixies is for our youngest of dancers (ages 3). In this 30 minute ballet class dancers will learn ballet basics as well as what it's like to be in a dance class. We focus on the beginning stages of technique, listening skills and cooperative learning skills.
Glitterbugs dancers (ages 3-4) will build upon the technique skills that were established in Pixies. In this 45 minute ballet/tap combo class more focus will be placed on combining skills together and retaining information. Dancers are expected to listen and work well together to establish a safe and engaging environment for all students.
Sparklers begins the preparation for level classes. For these dancers (ages 4-5) level classes are still a few years away but the process of preparing them for more concentrated technique work has started. Once again we will continue to add on to techniques learned in previous classes. In this ballet and jazz combination class they will begin to focus more on posture and flexibility as well as technique.
Our Kinderkids dancers (ages 6-8) are one more step away from our level classes. Therefore expectations are higher and they will be learning more than ever before. In order to move up they will need to retain previous techniques and be able to apply them to new elements and skills. While there is more focus on technique it is still our goal to retain an element of fun, using games and activities to teach and inspire. This class is 90 minutes and combines ballet, tap and jazz.
Kinder-hop is a 45 minute jazz and hip hop combination class for dancers ages 5-6. In this class dancers will add on to the basics of jazz and hip hop. This class is high energy and will start to prepare dancers for our jazz and hip hop level classes
Rocket hop dancers (ages 6-7) will work on the same level of skills as Rockets dancers, however they will be focused on Jazz and Hip Hop.
It is in this class that our dancers are expected to begin to learn techniques and elements that will be continued and perfected in level classes. This is a two way combination class with an option to add a third technique for an hour and a half class. We want our dancers to be prepared and well rounded when the enter level classes.
Pre-level classes are 45 minute individual ballet, jazz and tap classes. Dancers can take one, two or all three classes. Pre-Level classes will be more in depth and focus on preparing dancers for full level classes. Pre-level dancers are ages 7-8.
