story. The following week the students
put on costumes over their leotard/tights and then perform their routine. This class is an excellent dance class for

Ballet I, II, III, IV, and V. Classical Ballet is fundamental for all
dance classes. Ballet provides the basis
for all forms of dance and should be taken first, or concurrently, with Tap or
Jazz classes. Ballet teaches proper
technique, posture and terminology.
Students are grouped together by skill level and experience. Classes labeled Ballet incorporate technical
skills and performance skills.
and Pointe. This class is
only open to dancers who have instructor approval. Pre-Pointe and Pointe are similar to a
regular ballet class in terms of focus and discipline. The difference, however, is that students
wear pointe shoes (ballet shoes with a hard, full-soled shank and a boxed toe)
so that the ballerina may go fully onto pointe while in releve. This class is for the more advanced ballet
dancer and requires an additional ballet class and ballet technique class. As our young dancers grow, we emphasize the importance
of making decisions that will ensure our dancer’s future health. Not everyone is made for pointe class, so
ankle and foot bone structure, stage of growth, and strength must all be
considered. This is a Recital Class.
Tap Class will be offered by semester and
will meet once a week for 40 minutes. Tap
class is offered to students ages 7 and up and focuses on rhythm, musicality,

energetic warm-up, across-the-floor exercises, and combinations. Students
explore the fundamental steps of tap dance, learn tap terminology, and develop
the ability to maintain correct body placement.
