The students move and explore and learn essential skills for ballet, and contemporary classes. These two dance classes build on one another. They are 45 minute classes with an optional tap class offered at the end. We offer a unique approach in our younger classes!
Creative/ballet mix (5-6 yr. old): This class adds and expands on the creative movement class skills. In this class we add a small barre section some days and some days experiencing modern technique on the floor. We add some basic ballet steps and also increase their independence in creating movements in patterns and movements involving a broader range of movement in the upper body.
*Students will help construct sequences of movement in this class.
Ballet/modern mix (ages 7-9): This is a 1 hour class that has a mixed ballet and modern approach. Some days will be ballet barre others contemporary technique on the floor.

We offer a full barre and floor work in the ballet day and on the modern day there will be a full technique section and continue to develop their choreographic skills. Tap and Jazz are offered before or after class.
