Each class has a codified syllabus designed to facilitate the maximum physical, mental and emotional development appropriate to the age and physical ability of each student. We provide a happy and child-friendly environment where each child’s dreams and expressions are nurtured and valued. By instilling a love of dance in every child who enters our classrooms, we encourage them to be the best they can be, inspiring them to carry the disciplines learned from dance throughout their lives.
Registration is always ongoing. Our Spring recital is held in May 17th at 2:00pm at the Berry Center Performing Arts Theatre. The studio provides recital costumes and there is no recital fee. Ballet students must purchase school uniform sold at the studio. We sell ballet slippers, tights, skirts, dance bag and wraps on-site.
Tutu Toddlers These classes are for children 18 months up to the age of 3 years. Music, movement, balance and the basic dance steps are introduced in a fun, friendly and positive manner. This type of class includes mom or dad or another loved one participating in the class along with the little dancer. Our teachers will keep the music and curriculum moving along while parents take an active role in encouraging, supporting and keeping the little dancer on track.
Pre-Ballet Classes in our Pre Ballet division strike a perfect balance between structure and creativity. In this class we begin carefully laying the earliest foundation of ballet technique, but we always compliment our class work with fun, imaginative activities that keep young dancers captivated, engaged, and utterly in love with ballet.
Ballet I Just because you've entered the early years of Ballet doesn't mean you're ready to put aside the joys of twirling and the magic of fairytales...And why should it? In the Ballet I class we develop pure, fundamental ballet technique that will eventually allow our students to graduate to a disciplined study of the craft when their little bodies are ready. In the meantime, we'll continue to practice our plies like princes and princesses.
Ballet II Young dancers add new dance skills with larger movements. They begin work on refining their form and technique towards the achievement of precision. Students begin more advanced technique work in their barre exercises and combinations. Vocabualry and classical ballet movement will be taught. Dancers will explore balance, many kinds of jumps and combining several dance movements together. Students develop skills associated with academic success, self-discipline, self-confidence and the ability to concentrate and collaborate.
Hip Hop Class combines fun, easy-to-follow dance moves to popular music for boys and girls. A great place to shake their wiggles out! The non-competitive atmosphere is the perfect setting to introduce your child to hip hop and jazz dance.
Trial Class: Come and see what we are all about. Dancers are invited to participate in a "no obligation" trial class for $15.00 each class. We cannot wait to meet you and your little dancer.
