Acrobatics

Wednesday 5:30-6:30

Similar to Gymnastics, Acro combines fast tumbling like cartwheels and hand-springs with amazing feats of flexibility.

If you seek greater flexibility, or just like being upside-down, this class is for you.

  • form-fitting leotard or top and shorts
  • nothing that will go over your head when upside down
  • long hair should be “up”
  • bare feet

Jazz & Hip Hop

Wednesday 6:30-7:30

Fun, funky movement to the music that they love – with a bit of technique thrown in for good measure
  • Leotard or form-fitting top
  • Shorts or leggings
  • Black Jazz Shoes
  • Lace-up tennis shoe

Musical Theatre

Saturday 11:00-12:00

 

 

Have a flair for the dramatic? Need some help developing your emoting skills? We’ll cover all that and more, including acting and group singing. Students will have a featured role in the Recital.
  • Activewear

Tap & Ballet

Tuesday 4:15-5:15

Grace. Poise. Beauty. Discipline. The foundation of a solid dance education.
  • Black  leotard
  • pink tights
  • black tap shoes
  • pink ballet shoes
  • hair in a bun

On With the Show!

The word RECITAL doesn’t really do it justice– it’s really more of a Dance Extravaganza!

This exciting experience gives students an opportunity to display their accomplishments and a purpose to perfect their work.

Things you’ll love as a parent:

  • Instead of one great big 4+ hour recital, we actually have 4 smaller fun-size recitals to keep each one short and sweet
  • Recital Costumes are provided at no additional cost

If you removed all the arts in the lives of our children…there is no way that adding more mathematics, increasing more reading programs, requiring more science, mandating more tests, or scheduling more computer courses could replace what they would have lost.
