Tap 1 (7+ or 3 years experience): This class is designed to develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of tap styles and combinations. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. The class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun.
Ballet 1 & Ballet Technique (ages 7+): Ballet terminology with focus on posture, positions of the feet and arms, core body strength, arms (port de bras) and correct turn out based on a student’s ability and strength is emphasized at the barre. Traditional ballet class format of barre followed by center exercises is a gradual process to ensure that students develop their muscles correctly and do not force turnout. Moving in time with the music becomes more important, as well as memorization of ballet terminology. More complex combinations are given as students’ progress helping each student to create the firm dance foundation. Ballet class etiquette is part of the curriculum.
Intro to Pointe (Placement Only): Dancing on pointe is the act of standing on the tips of the toes while performing steps from ballet. It is performed using hard–toed and stiff shanked pointe shoes. Dancing on pointe requires strength and skill, so prior permission from instructor is required before students begin taking pointe classes.
