5 week Parent Toddler Sessions

This 30 minute class is designed for toddlers and adults to participate in class together! Designed for 1 &2 year olds, or even a young 3 year old! Dancers must be accompanied by an adult. We offer 3 different 5 week sessions per semester and yes you can sign up for more than one! 

 

​Creative Movement 3 yr olds 

This 30 minute class is the first class where young dancers are on their own! Parents have full view of the class through our big observation window. At this age we our focusing on developing gross motor skills and introducing the beginnings of ballet vocabulary in a fun creative way. In addition to the dancing skills, young dancers are learning to take turns and follow directions in a group environment which is a challenge all it's own at this age. Dancer should be potty trained and 3 by 9/01

 

 

 

​Pre Ballet 4 yr olds 


Now that dancers are a little older we advance to a 45 minute class. We continue to work on the growing motor skills that a 4 year old is discovering and get into more creative improvisation and a large creative vocabulary. Dancer should be 4 by 9/01

Level 1 5 & 6 yr olds 

This is a 2 year program designed for 5 & 6 yr olds. In our traditional Level 1 class we introduce a ballet barre, ballet center and finish the class with a little tap! A perfect time to work on rhythm and fine motor skills, not to mention it is fun to make noise! Additional options to consider would be our age appropriate Hip Hop class, Youth Capoeira and India Dance. Dancers should be 5 by 9/01

 

 

 

 

Level 2  7 & 8 yr olds 

This is also a 2 year program designed for 7 & 8 yr olds. The traditional combo class continues with ballet and tap technique and adds jazz to a growing dancer's training. More fun classes to consider: age appropriate Hip Hop, Ballet Ball, India Dance and Brazilian Capoeira. Dancers should be 7 by 9/01

 

 

 

Youth Ballet Ball Class Video

Level 3/4 approx. ages 9-11 yr olds *

There is room to grow within this level. Younger dancers may wish to start of with 1 ballet class a week plus and an elective. Older dancers may wish to do 2 ballet classes a week and several electives. Dancers serious about ballet should look at 2 or 3 ballet classes a week, foot fundamentals and the ballet ball class. The sky is the limit it is really up to you! *Placement is determines by faculty

 

 

 

 

Level 5/6 approx. ages 12-14 yr olds *

Now even more options for older dancers! The only requirement in this level is that pointe dancers must take 2 ballet classes a week plus foot fundamentals. If a dancer is in this level but not quite ready for pointe shoes we encourage them to take pointe classes in soft shoes as preparation towards their goal of getting on pointe.  Serious ballet students we recommend several ballet classes a week, foot fundamentals and the ballet ball class. Not a ballet dancer? We love you too! Please sign up for as many classes as your heart desires. Remember tuition gets cheaper the more classes one takes. *Placement is determines by faculty

So many classes we make it hard to choose. Let us know if we can help...
