Petite Classes


MINI MOVEMENT  |  CREATIVE MOVEMENT  |  KINDER COMBO | COMBO

Classes for our petite dancers are designed as an introduction to dance.  Body coordination, rhythmic awareness and listening skills are worked on in a fun, creative way specific to young dancers.  

Dancers in this group of classes perform in a smaller-scale year-end recital, typically held at the end of April. Dancers are able to gain some stage experience and show off their new talent in a perfect setting for this age group.

Class tuition is based on length of class. Several payment options are available

  • 30-min class: $40/mo
  • 45-min class: $42/mo
  • 60-min class: $46/mo

All classes meet once a week.


MINI MOVEMENT

CREATIVE MOVEMENT
AGE: 4  |  CLASS LENGTH: 30 MIN | $40/month

Dancers turning four no later than September 1 are placed in our Creative Movement class.

Dancers work on balance, posture, skipping, galloping, and hopping. Also, concepts such as right, left, up, down, in, and out.


KINDER COMBO
AGE: 5-6  |  CLASS LENGTH: 45 MIN | $42/month

Specifically for dancers in kindergarten, class time is divided between tap and ballet. Dancers concentrate on learning basic tap techniques including shuffle, flap, ball-change, and spanks. They focus on rhythm and learn to create percussion with their body. During the ballet, basic positions are taught and dancers are introduced to floor progressions. They also focus on their ability to combine movement with music. New dancers will feel comfortable in this class as all skills are introduced at an elementary level.
