CLASS ATTIRE AND DRESS CODE


CURRICULUM


Children's Combination Classes (3-4 Years Old) - This 45 minute creative movement class is designed to get your little prince or princess moving with basics of ballet and movement geared toward play and exploration.  Scarves, parachutes, and other props are used in class to enhance fun and the joy of dance!  Ballet and tap dance are explored.  Students must be potty trained.  (45 minutes)


Children's Combination Classes (5-6 Years Old) - Students have the option of choosing Ballet/Tap Combo, Ballet/Jazz Combo, or Hip Hop/Acro Combo class. (55 minutes)

Ballet (Ages 7+)  - An art form that originated in Italy, and later developed in France, Russia, and beyond!  Ballet is the foundation of dance.  It allows the dancer to get a solid understanding of the body.  There are several different techniques of ballet including: The Vaganova/Russian Method and The Cecchetti/French Method.   (Class time varies:  1 hr  - 1.5 hrs)

Pointe (Ages 11+) - An extension of ballet technique for women, Pointe allows the dancer to execute the technical steps of ballet dance in Pointe (or on "toe").  This class requires advanced training in ballet and requires instructor approval in order to enroll in the class.  Beginner through Level III Pointe students must also be enrolled in a separate Ballet class.  (45 minutes)

Modern / Contemporary (Ages 7+) - Developed in America as a departure from classical ballet, modern dance incorporates technique with more pedestrian movement.  Contemporary can be considered a fusion of modern and lyrcial dance with barefeet or FootUndeez.  (60 minutes)

Hip Hop (Ages 7+) - Street styles and urban inspired movement and music keep this class groovin'.  Much attention and emphasis is on isolation of the body, grounded movement, and personal flair.  Music is screened for inappropriate lyrics.*  (60 minutes)
