About Our Classes
Incorporating the fundamentals of gymnastics and tumbling, our Acro class is designed to develop strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, while increasing stamina. The class will focus on forward and backward skills (rolls, bends and kick overs), cartwheels/aerials, and balances (headstand, handstand and elbow stands). Students will build self-esteem while developing muscle control, discipline, and concentration. Each student will progress through skills at their own pace, building on their individual level of experience.
Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes are available to all ballet students at our Intermediate Level and above who have attained a specific level of strength, flexibility, and body placement. Before enrolling in these classes and obtaining pointe shoes, students need to be assessed by our staff to be sure they are ready for pointe work. Students who are taking pointe must also take ballet. Because it takes several years of training to be proficient, our lower pointe levels perform a ballet dance but not a pointe dance in our Recital.
As well as tap classes for children and teens, we have several levels of tap for adults. Whether you are new to tap, haven’t tapped in years, or have been tapping all along, we have a class for you!
The Performing Group was created for those students who are interested in enhancing their dance knowledge, technique and experience. It is for those who wish to excel at dance and who wish to perfect their art. Participants will be supported in a positive environment while being encouraged to reach their highest potential. Students in the Performing Group will be given many different opportunities to perform the skills they have learned. The students will typically be engaged in performances, competitions, and dance conventions.
