Combination Class of Ballet/Jazz/Tap (currently unavailable)Combo class- children dance class

Combo 1: Ages 3-4 is an introduction to dance. The primary goal is to foster a love of movement. The creative component is quite large. Several fun or special activities happen in each class. For example, a scarf or flag dance at the end can facilitate the dancers own physical expression. Taking part in dancing out a narrative helps children to understand that dancing is expression. It is a means of communicating feelings and actions. The vocabulary covered in Combo 1 is all steps that a 3 year old can master and they build self-confidence. The vocabulary is also set up to prepare students for Combo 2.

Combo 2: Ages 4-5 covers a basis of movement found in all dance forms. The goals of Combo 2 are to foster creativity, freedom and expression in movement, and a love for dance. The class includes concepts that are found in an older childs dance class. The concepts will prepare the students for the following year when they graduate to Pre-Primary Ballet, Jazz or Tap. 1 or 2 creative or free components are also included within each class. By the end of the year the students can dance set work independent of the teacher, memorize simple exercises and sequences, and make a start of musical interpretation.
