Dance with Me: Parent & Child Classes

Dance with Me: Ballet (age 2) is a perfect introduction to ballet that incorporates parent and child participation. Dancers will learn the basics of ballet in a fun, imaginative environment! * Parent participation is required for this class. 

Dance with Me Hip Hop (age 2) is a great introduction to hip hop that is ideal for moms, dads, or caregivers who want to dance with their young one! Students develop awareness of body parts and different functional movements. Fundamental movements are explored as a way to introduce skills that are later developed in our beginner hip hop, jazznastics, and ballet classes!

Ballet

Beginner Ballet This class introduces students to beginning ballet skills while encouraging fun and creativity! An excellent preparation for continuing dance training in any discipline. We also offer some classes that are specifically for 3 year olds and 4-5 year olds, just to better tailor to their developmental needs.

Junior Ballet is an excellent first ballet class for students! This class follows a traditional ballet class format and introduces young dancers to the fundamentals of ballet while building strength, flexibility and agility. All ballet students should arrive to class wearing ballet slippers, tights and a leotard.

Youth Ballet is a continuation of Junior Ballet. Students in this class will further their ballet training in a more challenging environment.

Jazznastics

Jazznastics Dancers learn the basics of pre-dance while incorporating beginning tumbling skills! This class is an excellent way to improve coordination, flexibility and motor skills while having a blast! Students should wear something they're comfortable moving in - leotard and tights are acceptable but not required.  Students may wear socks or ballet shoes.

Tap

Tap introduces children to the basics of tap dancing within the structure of a traditional tap class. Children are taught to understand basic rhythm and counting skills while by mimicking sounds they hear in class and in music. All tap students should wear tap shoes and comfortable clothes that they can move in.

Jazz

Jazz promotes an appreciation for musicality and helps develop coordination and flexibility. Dancers will develop and improve upon basic movements and performative qualities.

Modern Dance

This class is a way to reflect a culture and times of a society and therefore, is a great vehicle for empowering young dancers with a voice. We will explore modern dance through its complimentary art of improvisation, which enhances self-awareness, empathy, focus, and creativity. Through this dance series, your children will develop great postural alignment, bodily and spatial awareness, and grow in self-confidence!
