- Ballet / Tap / Jazz
This combination class starts with tots at age 3 with First Steps, and progresses through petites, juniors, and advanced level classes. First Steps introduces 3-5 year olds to ballet and tap, including lower body technique, basic steps and vocabulary. Petites picks up with older kids ages 5 to 9, and builds on the skills developed in First Steps, plus introduces Jazz techniques such as spotting, leaping, center control, and turning. We continue training with Juniors ages 9 to 11, and begin more advanced techniques starting at age 12.
- Advanced Ballet/Pre-Pointe
This class is dedicated to teaching pointe fundamentals to students of the appropriate age and technical ability. Because of the risk of injury, students must be physically ready so one complete dance year of pre-pointe and a pointe evaluation is required before advancement to pointe class. The pointe evaluation allows teachers and students the opportunity to see where the student needs work in order to prepare for pointe. The evaluation focuses on legs (straightness and strength), feet (flexibility, strength, alignment, and shape), ankles (strength and straightness), and overall body alignment.
