(Classes Description) :

All Group Classes run all year long (including summer and all school breaks).

All classes will begin with a warm-up, then stretch, some will have more conditioning* time depending on age, level and genre. Classes will consist of technique center work, across/around the floor, and/or a combination/routines of Syllabus (Bronze, Silver, Gold) levels, and Open levels- depending on age, level and genre. Ballet and Pointe/Advanced Stretching classes will also incorporate barre work.

*Conditioning will take on the form of traditional push-up, sit-ups, etc., but we also use games, specifically for the younger dancers. So, if you see your 2nd graders playing leapfrog just know that they’re using some serious muscles for this activity!

*Dance combinations are often used for 3–4 (or more) weeks in each class, adding on each week. This teaches dancers to learn quickly and polish dance routines. We also have students use improvisation techniques to bring out their inner choreographer! We feel VERY strongly that these techniques encourage overall creativity and provide a fun and athletic outlet for kids!
