PreBallet Ages 2.5-4 Come dance and play - children will learn the basics of ballet while having fun and using their imagination in a musical environment. We use parachutes for coordination and rhythm and learn the basic ballet concepts like pointing toes, stretching and loosening muscles and joints and the first five positions. In this class, we will be concentrating on preparing the young body and setting the base for more intense training as they progress. This is a FUN class! Tutu's and ballerina dress ups are highly encouraged. Parent participation is not required but PLEASE do not leave your child unattended.
Ballet 1 Ages 5-7 This class in extremely important and will set the stage (so to speak) for later technical/artistic ability. We'll focus on learning the structure of a classical ballet class and progress into simple ballet steps. This is a time to learn large motor skills, while moving in musical phrases; practice following directions; hone memorization skills by remembering the order of exercises and learn cooperation by working in a group. Work at the barre is minimal just to help with balance and class structure. We'll divide barre time with rhythmic studies and creative movement. This class is recommended at least once a week.
Ballet 2 Ages 8-12 This is a solid ballet class. I want to train dancers to use their bodies correctly, focusing on kinetics and coordination as well as their anatomy and proper body alignment. With this training, I hope to provide students with a rich knowledge of classical ballet technique. With a proper base, students should be able to acquire the ability to adapt to all styles and techniques of dance. This class is recommended twice a week.
Ballet 3 / Teen Ages 13 and up This is a more advanced continuation of Ballet #2 class. Prior ballet experience is recommended. Ballet #3 could also benefit and are welcome to take Adult classes for extra training. This class is recommended at least 2/3 times a week or more if interested in a fast paced progression.
Pre-Pointe / Pointe Class /Company Class - By Invitation Only Pointe work training is an essential part of becoming a ballerina. In order to be able to dance on pointe, a dancer must have had time to achieve the form, strength and alignment needed to make a successful transition into pointe work. Proper technique is required to be able to properly rise on the toes without risk of injury. Variations class is a way to learn and properly execute excerpts from classical ballets that are being used in today's professional companies. This is a great way to learn a piece for ballet/college program auditions. An invitation is necessary from an instructor prior to registration.
Open Adult Ballet Ballet is not only graceful and athletic but can be a great way to stay in shape. Ballet is one of the most physically demanding activities in the world. Flexibility and strength are essential and whether you're goal is to become a pro or you just want a good workout, everyone can benefit from this kind of training. This is a NON competitive environment, adult students can simply relax, have a good time and workout at a speed that's comfortable for them. ALL Levels Welcome!
JAZZ - Level 1, 2 & 3/Teen
A commercial style of dance with an emphasis on technique that includes hip hop, contemporary and theatrical dance routines performed to popular music. JAZZ Fitness Jazz Fitness is an exercise class that uses jazz dance techniques to help strengthen and stretch your body while dancing to fun, popular music. You will be taught to combine exercise and dance, with the goal of helping you achieve a strong, healthy body while enjoying music and learning a few dance moves.
Private Coaching Everyone's body and technical approach is different. One on one instruction is the most effective way to ensure that you're getting the best training specifically tailored to meet your needs as a dancer. Whether you're training for a competition, audition or just would like to enhance your current curriculum, private coaching is the fastest way to see improvements.
Dress Code A dress code ensures that a teacher will be able to see a dancer's alignment and positioning. Most dance studios require students to wear form fitting/yet supportive leotards and tights, sometimes requiring classical pink or skin colored tights in order to make the lines of the legs visible. Girls Ballet- Form fitting leotard (any color), skin colored/classical pink tights only, leather or canvas soft ballet slippers (I prefer NON split sole - PLEASE email me if you have further questions or need help in finding them) A small sheer wrap around skirt is acceptable. Jazz - NO black rubber soled Jazz shoes (unless they have suede soles) Otherwise light colored jazz shoes acceptable or soft soled ballet shoes or socks. Any form fitting exercise attire that easy to move in is appropriate. Hair - Hair should be tied back securely away from face. Classic bun, french twist or short pony tails. Boys - T-shirt, comfortable shorts, socks and soft ballet shoes. Age appropriate male support. Adults - Any form fitting exercise attire that is comfortable and you can move easily in.
