For 2 and 3 year old students we offer 'Baby Ballet'. Your dancer will develop coordination, motor skills, and classroom behavioral skills. These classes include an introduction to basic ballet, song & dance routines, and basic acrobatic skills. Three year olds may also take "Tiny Tap" and/or "Tot Hop & Tumble" for an increased focus on musicality and coordination. These classes meet for 30 minutes.
For 4 olds, we offer classes that engage in fun, imaginative activities designed to develop motor skills, coordination, musicality, and confidence. They may take ballet/jazz, "Tot Hop & Tumbler" and/or "Tiny Tap". Each class is 30-45 minutes long.
Because of increased coordination, retention abilities, and attention span, children in Kindergarten and up may choose to take ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and/or acrobatics. At this level, we will use a variety of age-appropriate methods to introduce proper dance techniques and terminology. Each class will meet once a week for 45 minutes. We make a sincere effort to "stack" classes for scheduling convenience.
We offer ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, acrobatics and/or lyrical for dancers in 3rd grade through High School (depending on interest and availability).
Based on the amount of interest, we offer adult classes in ballet, tap, or jazz. We may also offer exercise-based classes, such as Pilates and Yoga. New classes will be offered based on interest, so we welcome your suggestions. No previous dance experience is necessary; we ask only that you have fun and be willing to try new things.
(Note: In accordance with Wilkes County Schools, we typically use August 1st as our age cut-off date when determining class placement.)
