(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) Ballet and Tap Foundations - The style and the beauty of a traditional Ballet class mixed with the musicality and fun of Tap Dancing. Tap dancing combines rhythm and coordination to make music with the feet and body.
(c) Jazz 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.
(d) 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.
