Classes are offered in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Leaps & Turns, Stretch, and Contemporary beginning at the age of 7. Recreational and pre-professional classes are available to this age group and many extra opportunities are provided as well! Below are the new class options and opportunities offered for dancers 7 and up. Call us today if your dancer is interested in a complimentary placement class.
Leaps & Turns is a half hour technique class offered to our Jazz and Ballet dancers! Dancers work on different aspects of leaps and turns and the conditioning that helps dancers achieve these elements. This class does not perform in the recital and dancers must be enrolled in a Jazz or Ballet class to take this class.
Pointe is for serious Ballet dancers that are at LEAST 10 years old with at LEAST 2 years of serious Ballet training. We look at many different components such as core strength, ankle alignment and strength, foot and ankle flexibility, foot articulation, and years training to help determine if a child is ready to train en pointe. This class is by invitation only and is at the director’s discretion in order to keep dancers safe from injury.
Stretch/Conditioning is a half hour class open to dancers interested in improving their flexibility by doing various stretches utilizing their bodies as well as therabands and the ballet barres. Dancers also work on alignment, posture, core strength and foot exercises in this class.
By invitation only, these classes are for the dancer that is serious in taking their Ballet training to the next level. Beginning at the age of 7, dancers that the director feels would be a good fit for this program are invited to join! Dancers must reach a certain level of Ballet training and commit to the pre-professional class requirements of their level in order to be considered for this division. Extra training and performance opportunities are provided. To read more about our Pre-Professional Ballet Program, please visit our “Pre-Professional Ballet Division” tab under “Classes”.
