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. They 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 and jazz. 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 dance subject will meet once a week for 45-60 minutes.
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, Yoga, and Callanetics. 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.)
