Ballet & Tap

Is an introduction to ballet/tap for ages 5-6. This class will teach your child about strength, flexibility, mobility, and control. Beginning ballet will teach the basics of proper alignment, ballet terms as well as creative use of scarves and introduction to different music forms. The class teaches the basics of tap through vocabulary, rhythmic analysis, and change of weight. The object of this dance form is to master the use of feet and body in playing melodic patterns and drumming out rhythms. The tap dancer is the music or in other words the composer. This ballet/tap class will also enhance balance, fitness, sense of rhythm, self-expression, coordination, musicality, as well as promoting self-discipline and boosting confidence.

Children – Ages 5 & 6

Music Theater

This eight week course will introduce the students to acting, singing, and dancing and the world of musical theatre. They will focus on learning the terminology of the theatre, creating a character, vocalization, creative writing and choreography. For the acting segment of this class, we will focus on improvisation, as we free each actor of their inhibitions. Acting is important for children of all ages, as it strengthens their self-esteem. At the end of the 8 week course we will have an informal showing of the work we have accomplished.
