This class is used as a base for our ballet / tap classes.

At this age, dance should be about learning to nurture creativity in movement.

Through strong dancing, weekly themes, and the use of hundreds of props and costumes Creation Station Ballet / Tap Classes become a magical dance experience for every child.

- Ballet / Tap (5 years +)

Once a child has reached this age, we will begin to incorporate more elements of traditional ballet technique. Developing strength, balance, coordination and flexibility, your child will start to learn proper body alignment, as well as barre, and center floor exercises. Our classes will challenge the students both mentally and physically, yet still keep that sense of creativity. At this stage, your child will be asked to wear appropriate ballet attire including hair tied away from their face. This creates an environment free from distractions and enables the students to feel like true dancers.

- Jazz / Lyrical / Contemporary (6 years +):
Our classes are a combination of ballet, jazz, and modern dance in which the student's primary objective is to tell a story or convey emotions with their body.

Children will start to learn how to "story dance" in this wonderfully creative movement class.

If your child needs to sing as well as dance, then this class is playing their song! Children will explore the music and movements of some of Broadway's greatest hits! Your child will learn to vocalize properly, convey emotions through song, dance to show a storyline, memorize scenes, play theater games and help to choreograph. This class is performance based and each term will culminate in some show stopping numbers. Let's teach them that there is something else out there besides Disney!

These ballet classes begin with training at the barre to practice proper body placement, warm and strengthen muscles, and build technique that is brought to the center. In the center, dancers work on adagio (slow, controlled movements that combine strength and flexibility), petit allegro (small, quick jumps that build speed and ease of motion), allegro (more dramatic movements that are a natural extension of petit allegro), and grand allegro (large, spectacular steps that us a combination of skills learned throughout class).
