Pre-School Tap/ Ballet... a beginner half hour class for 3, 4, and 5 year olds. These classes offer the very basic fundamentals to the young developing mind. Included in these classes are lessons in right and left, counting to 8, basic motor skills, feeling the rhythm of music, creative imagination, and of course the beginning steps in each form of dance. May be taken one at a time or in combination.

Tap... a 45 minute class for beginners through advanced for all ages. These classes offer the art of making rhythmic sounds through the tap shoe and precise movements of the feet. The technique offered can give the student the ability to be not just a dancer, but also a percussionist of sorts.

Ballet... a 1 hour class for beginners through advanced for all ages. These classes offer classical ballet technique starting with floor stretches for warming-up the muscles and flexibility, continuing to the barre where the fundamentals are taught and perfected, and ending in center floor to perform combinations of technique earlier learned at the barre. Ballet strengthens the body and improves balance.

Jazz... a 45 minute class for beginners through advanced for all ages. These classes offer technique that is a combination of the ballet and tap steps. Styles range depending on music selection from musical theater to music video to lyrical. Most of the class is spent in center floor and is a favorite of young people today.

Pointe... a 45 minute class for the advanced ballet dancer. Because of physical body development, muscle strength and technique, a dancer should have at least 5 years of ballet training and be around 11 years of age before beginning pointe. These classes offer the advanced ballet dancer the technique needed and the guidance to learn the art of dancing on the pointe shoe. This is a shoe with a hard box, a flat front end, and a supported shank for standing on ones toes while creating the ballet technique.

Baton... a 45 minute class for beginners through advanced for all ages. These classes offer technique in mastering twirls, tricks and basic dance steps. Perfect for the recreational student or the student preparing for high school try outs.

Additional classes offered in Voice & Piano.

All Class sizes are limited to 15 students.
