hello dancer!

The 2018/2019 Dance Season brings about a lot of fun things for Hello Dancer!  It is our first official full season of dance and wiggles, giggles, smiles, twirls and leaps!  We are focusing on three main areas: The Toddler, the Children and the Youth Programs and all or a wonderful mix of fundamentals, foundations and fun! 

1. The Toddler Program is for 2-4 year olds and is focused on developing fine and gross motor skills, listening, basic movements, and lots of wiggling and giggling with mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, big sis or whoever wants to dance with the little one!

(a) Mommy & Me - This is a perfect way for the child who may not be ready to take class on his or her own yet and for the mom or dad that wants to wiggle and and giggle with their little one! Creative movement, pre-ballet and awareness basics along with parent/child activities are built into this class. We love to incorporate colorful and educational props in all of the classes. Children will gain coordination, confidence, listening skills, balance, music interpretation and motor development.   This is an absolute blast to start out with!     

 

2. The Children's Program is geared towards 3-7 year olds and is pretty special.  We have four sections in this program. The are great separately but we dare you to pair them up! They make absolute magic together!

(a) Fairytale Ballet - Your tiny dancer will love exploring ballet classes based on fairytales and classical ballet stories. Each month we have a new fairytale for your dancer to pirouette through.  They will travel through Cinderella's magical garden and skip through her pond on the way to the elegant ball.  Listening, turn taking and social skills are developed each week as well as age appropriate technique and terms for the basics of pre-ballet. These classes are the beginning to a series of progressive levels for learning ballet and are geared for dancers aged 3-7yrs old.

(b) Twirl & Tap - Leap and dream while learning the fundamentals of pre-ballet and tap with engaging music, a variety of fun themes and props that are sure to set the imagination on fire!  It is jam packed with twirls and toe tapping fun and is designed to enhance the motor, listening and social skills. This class has a great mix of styles!

(c) Move & Groove - How else can we describe this but to move and groove! So it is time to "hip hop ya don't stop."  This is our intro to the world of hip hop and all things funky and fun in the world of dance.  This class is designed specifically for your high energy little one.  They will learn rhythm, coordination, timing, gain confidence, strength, while learning the fundamental basics of hip hop.  All of the music and dance moves are age appropriate and out of this world fun!

(d) Jammy Time - We can NOT think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning then this!  The Saturday Morning Jammy Time is a mix of Old School Saturday Morning Cartoons and Dancing!  This class teaches kids how to move to the beat and dance with others in a variety of styles.  The class is themed with having a super fun time while learning fundamentals of creative movement and dancing. Grab your favorite pajamas and join us for a rocking fun time!

 

3. The Youth Foundations Program is built for 7-12 year olds and is completely structured around learning the foundations of dance. The Foundations Program has three components that are all separate but best if paired.

(a) Ballet Foundations - Ballet is the foundation upon which most dance forms are based and is by far and away Mrs. April's favorite.  In this class, your child continues working on proper body alignment and fluid movement and begins barre work as well as center floor, and across the floor progressions.  They will also be exposed to more dance terms and continue working on the building blocks of movement to progress onto more advanced levels of dance training.

(b) Jazz & Tap Foundations - This class is a fun and upbeat combo of jazz and tap, two very popular forms of dance in the world of Broadway and theater.  In this class, your dancer can get ready for some snazzy, jazzy and everyday we're shuffling dance moves!  Jazz is a very popular, upbeat, stylized form of dance that includes leaps, jumps, kicks, turns and everything in between, while tap dancing combines rhythm and coordination to make music with the feet and body.

(c) Hip Hop Foundations - Welcome to Hip Hop Foundations. This is a fun, exciting, and energetic class that focuses on the popular style of urban dance.  Classwork consists of learning to develop coordination, body awareness, strength building, growing self-esteem and promoting confidence. Learn the fundamental hip hop moves including basic body isolations, precision, performance quality, and develop a vocabulary of steps and combinations.  All music and dancing are age appropriate.
