Pre-Ballet: Ballet is often called the "foundation" of dance training. Ballet helps students develop an awareness of body placement, coordination, poise, balance, flexibility, agility, and strength. Students who love other forms of dance find that taking ballet classes will greatly improve their abilities, even in other genres of dance. Pre-Ballet introduces foundational concepts for ballet training. Serious technical ballet training begins at age 8.

 

 

 

 

Hip Hop 1: (5K is on the age cusp - some students at this age will do best to have one year in Hippity Hop before taking Hip Hop 1.) Our hip hop classes focus on musicality, dynamics, and technique. Students will do warm-ups, progressions, and learn routines to strengthen their choreography retention. We focus on isolations and patterns for visual effectiveness along with having fun and learning to express one’s self through dance moves. Age appropriate choreography and music is used in all classes!*We STRONGLY encourage hip-hop students to enroll in technique classes so their training is well rounded and complete.

 

 

Tumbling 1: Our tumbling program focuses on proper technique, flexibility, and strength. We train students starting from the most basic tricks such as somersaults and cartwheels to more advanced tricks such as back handsprings and back tucks. Tumblers work on mats with spotters. We do not utilize beams, bars, or other gymnastics equipment, but rather focus on tricks that can be perfected using mats only. Some refer to this class as acrobatics or acro.*We STRONGLY encourage tumbling students to enroll in technique classes so their training is well rounded and complete.
