For the well-being of everyone, we will continue to follow the health protocols currently in place, which have proven effective in keeping all of us healthy and dancing all year. Please click here for more details on our protocols: Health Precautions

We look forward to dancing with you this summer!

CHILDREN’S DIVISION

Creative Movement (Ages 3-5) introduces pre-school children to the wonderful world of dance as they use their imaginations and explore expressive movement techniques. They’ll gain a deeper understanding of musicality and body awareness and improve movement skills and coordination in a nurturing and creative environment.

Pre-Ballet 1 & 2 (Ages 4-6) introduces young children to the joy of ballet through an introduction of basic ballet steps and vocabulary, including the classical positions of the arms and feet. French terminology associated with the learned ballet steps is also introduced. Through practice and repetition, movement skills, coordination, posture, flexibility and spatial awareness are all developed.

Children’s Sampler (Ages 4-7) introduces Ballet and Tap to youngsters, all within one class. Students will learn some of the basics of ballet as well as some basic tap steps and rhythms. Being introduced to these forms together can be fun as the tap portion provides an outlet for beginners to release stored up energy. Tap and Ballet shoes will be required.
