Intro to Ballet/Jazz/Tap

~ for beginner dancers

 

     Intro to Dance class continues to build on the components introduced in the Just Dance! program. Working with young dancers through Creative Movement on the foundational elements of ballet and jazz and tap, through rhythm, beat and beginner technique. Goals include:  building strength, increasing flexibility, developing body alignment, working on isolations, rhythmic exercises, and gaining balance, grace and control. This class will work on learning 1 or 2 simple pieces of movement/choreography during the season.

 

The creativity and imagination at 'play' in these programs are cornerstones for building confidence and self-esteem in our children.
