3-1/2, 4 & 5 YEARS Introduce your child to the world of ballet through music and movement. This class will begin to teach your child dance steps and dance terminology. Students will use props (scarves, balls and much more) and will be introduced to the ballet barre. This class will also introduce dancers to jazz and hip-hop with the latest music and steps.

6 YEARS AND UP This is the combination class for beginners through advanced. All dancers will be introduced to ballet, jazz & tap in this class. Class begins with a set of warm-ups & stretches to music, followed by ballet technique (center floor or at the barre). The class includes jazz, across-the-floor technique, turns, combinations, and the ever-popular hip-hop routines. Then it’s time to tap! All tap classes follow the Al Gilbert method for warm-ups & barre and finish with a practice routine.

STRICT BALLET For serious dancers only. Ballet classes will be recommended to those students who show great interest in becoming a dancer or furthering their abilities in dance. Dancers should take 1 to 2 years of combination class before deciding to add this second class. Students must wear pink tights, pink ballet shoes, and black leotards – without exception. Hair must be off the face, preferably in a bun.
