Our most popular program is when schools hire us to come in and teach the whole school General dance. In 20 minute segments or longer, our instructors travel from classroom to classroom teaching our customized dance program. Featuring a wide range of music and props, the classes focus on large motor skills such as marching, kicking, turning, jumping and galloping.
Each dance class includes a warm-up, a dance move of the month (skill), a short routine, and time for creative play that every child will enjoy! We also design Holiday shows, Spring concerts, End-of-the-Year shows, and Graduation performances to showcase what the students have learned in class.
Ballet BUILDING STRENGTH, POISE & CONFIDENCE
Our Ballet classes are designed to have fun and teach good technique. Your dancer will learn positions of the arms and feet, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd position. They will also learn Arabesque, Passé, Tendu, Jeté and so much more. To engage the child we use an assortment of costumes and prop such as tiaras and wands, butterfly wings, scarves, and ribbons.
Each class finishes up with a creative play story where we take the dancer on a magic carpet ride, a storybook fairytale, or to a magical forest. And finally, we always say goodbye with a curtsy or bow. Don’t forget to ask about our weekly coloring pages so you can see what your dancer has learned!
