Our dance program aims to enhance the creativity of each individual through movement. Our dance classes are designed with a specific syllabus for each level to ensure there is understanding, growth and proper technique taught. The levels consist of Level I Beginner, Level II-Intermediate and Level III-Advanced. Placement into each level is determined by experience and teacher recommendation. Open level classes are available to everyone.
These classes are technique classes designed to introduce students to steps at the barre, center and across the floor work. In each technique class, the students will develop an understanding of each dance style and build upon it with progressive skills. Dancers will learn terminology, music & rhythm, performance technique, memorization skills and creative movement.
Our performing classes are open from Fall Session until Spring I. In the Spring sessions, the performing classes are closed to new students so that the dancers may begin choreography and work toward an end of the year recital. Attendance and commitment are extremely important.
