Pre-dance

Pre-pointe

By instructor recommendation only
Gives the serious ballet student the necessary training for beginning to dance en pointe. Pointe work is performed using specially designed hard-toed, stiff-shanked pointe shoes, and requires great strength and skill. Pre-pointe classes meet twice weekly in order to fully explore proper placement and technique, and to insure strong, supple body development.
– 1-hour class, twice weekly

– 90-minute class, twice weekly

Jazz/Hip-Hop/Theatre Jazz

– 1-hour class

Tap

Ages 5+
Helps develop coordination while creating interesting rhythmic sounds with the feet. While ballet often helps tap dancers with balance and weight change, tap also helps ballet and jazz dancers hear rhythms and music more completely.
