Ballet"The Basis of all Forms of Dance"
We base our training on the Vaganova Syllabus. Ballet levels are graded (1) for beginner through (7) for advanced, with each level building on the skills of the previous one. Classes are from 1 to 1.5 hours in length.
This class is by invitation only, and is held immediately after a ballet class. Pre-requisites: Students who desire to study pointe must be enrolled in a minimum of two ballet classes per week.
This class combines the technical training of classical jazz with the movements of today's Street Funk styles. Classes are held once per week for 1 hour. Levels are graded (1) for beginner through (6) for advanced, with each level building on the skills of the previous one. Pre-requisites: Level 6 students must be currently enrolled in two ballet classes per week.
Students are taught the art of creating rhythm and music with their feet while presenting visual pictures. Tap levels are graded (1) through (7) for advanced, with each level building on the skills of the previous one.
Our approach draws from the major codified techniques to teach the concepts of shape, dynamics and physical expression.
Pre-requisites: Students must have completed at least one year of a full-hour ballet class (level 1-7) and be currently enrolled in a ballet class.
Ages 5 to 8
