Creative Movement (kids ages 3 and 4)
Creative Movement is a way for a young dancer to explore how their body moves and how it moves through space. Using locomotion movements, dancing with props, rhythm, a variety of music, and dynamic level changes, a young dancer in this class will have the opportunity to express themselves through movement in an age-appropriate and fun way.
Youth Ballet 1 (kids ages 5-7)
Youth Ballet 1 is the very beginning of ballet training. The dancer will learn basic ballet steps and positions while being introduced to ballet vocabulary. They will learn the ballet class structure working from ballet barre, to the center of the room, to moving across the floor while dancing to age-appropriate and fun ballet music. These dancers will also have the opportunity to express themselves creatively.
Youth Ballet 2 & 3 (kids ages 8-10 and returning students 10+)
Youth Ballet 2 is the next step in a young dancers ballet education. Youth Ballet 3 is for students who have completed Youth Ballet 2 for several years. In this combined level class, dancers in both levels will practice the basic ballet steps and positions. They will appropriately expand their dance vocabulary to include new ballet steps and positions. They will practice at the ballet barre and in the center of the room, as well as move across the floor. Steps will be combined into longer combinations and phrases, dancing to age-appropriate and fun ballet music. There will be opportunities to learn character dance as well as express themselves creatively.
All classes will have the opportunity to participate in a small end of the year recital as well as perform in the community.
