Dance with Me & Creative Movement
Dance with Me is for the tiniest of dancers ages 2 & up. This class is structured like a Creative Movement class, but a parent or caregiver attends the class with the child. Creative Movement is for dancers ages 3 & up who are ready to do a class without mom or dad! This 30 minute class is a great way to explore movement in the classroom setting. Lots of props, lots of music, and lots of fun!!
Kinderdance is for dancers ages 4 & up. This 30 minute class is a great transition from Creative Movement to Combo. The class combines ballet, jazz and tumbling and prepares dancers for learning sequenced steps.
Combo & Pop-Hop Classes
Combo & Pop-Hop classes are for dancers ages nearly 5 to 7. The Combo classes is a 45 minute class combines tap, ballet, and jazz in an exciting overview of dance with age-appropriate progression of skills. Each age has their own specific Combo Level so that dancers are grouped with other dancers of their same age/grade. The Pop-Hop class is a 30 minute hip-hop for our youngest dancers! Music & costuming is age appropriate. Tumble Tikes classes (also for ages 4-6) can be found under our Acro section.
Acro, short for Acrobatics, is where dancers increase flexibility and strength as they learn tumbling movements such as handstands, elbow stands, backbends, kick-overs, back walkovers, and eventually aerials!
This track is designed for students that are fully committed to their dance training. We start all students ages 8+ in Level I Intensive Track so that they can decided their commitment level as they progress. Content and demands become more rigorous as students progress. For example, Ballet at least once per week becomes a requirement at Level 3, and twice per week at Levels 4 & up. This track includes pointe work (optional) at Level 4. Attendance expectations are higher—students may not miss more than 3 consecutive training classes, and at Level 3 & up may not miss more than 1 consecutive choreography class during recital season (Jan-May) without their absences affecting their spot in the dance. Students will follow a designated curriculum with mastery requirements, imperative for physical safety and advancement to the next level.
This track is perfect for an older beginner, or for students with a variety of interests outside of dance. Attendance requirements are more flexible as the training does not progress at such a rapid pace. Emphasis is on fun and progression, rather than accomplishment.
Tap classes are both for the recreational & intensive track dancers.
Musically & technically challenging & fun!
Notes about our classes & placement
Both the Intensive Track and the Recreational Track will follow a numerical level designation starting at Level 1 (ages 7+). Since they are very similar in the beginning, a student could choose either track that best fits their schedule. At Levels 2 and 3 the training distinctions become greater and students would then choose which track they want to follow.
Advancement to the next level happens when a student has mastered the material in his/her existing level, which the teacher determines at the end of the season. Oftentimes a student may need to repeat a level to achieve this mastery, but rest assured it is in the best interest of the student. Dance is an “individual sport” and different students progress at different rates for different reasons.
If you have any questions about the two tracks or about your placement, please reach out to us. We want you to feel comfortable with your child's placement!
