Tiny Stars - Ballet/Jazz/Tap (30 Minutes):

Our Platinum Dance classes are for boys and girls ages 18 months – 3 years old. This class is an introduction to dance for our young toddlers, where they will have the opportunity to continue to develop their independence while dancing and exploring rhythms! We use our imaginations, learn instructions and classroom etiquette, and start to learn basic dance steps. Dancers learn about balancing, stretching our muscles, and begin to learn dance terms such as plié, relevé, arabesque, passé, tendu, and arm and feet positions. Parents are welcome to join/observe if necessary, but we encourage parents to “hide” from your dancer if possible so they can explore and learn independently!

Rising Stars - Ballet/Jazz/Tap (45 minutes):

Our Combo classes are for boys and girls ages 3-6 years old. This class expands on our Tiny Stars class, however Tiny Stars is not a prerequisite to this class. Any dancer of any background (or no dance background) can join this class! We work on skills such as jumping, balancing, galloping, while also working on peer interactions and etiquette that reaches beyond the classroom. Students experience practice and exercises as a whole group, in partners, and individually. We work on ballet steps such as plié, relevé, arabesque, passé, tendu, and arm and feet positions, and continue to expand their repertoire from previous classes. We begin introducing tap steps such as a flap, shuffle, dig, and many more! Our jazz steps allow us to use our ballet basics and expand on them in fun, upbeat songs! This class is versatile for a variety of age and technique levels, so our teachers are able to cater to individual needs and ensure that each of our students has fun!

Shooting Stars - Hip Hop (45 minutes):

Our Jazz/Hip-Hop class is for boys and girls ages 6-10 years old. This is a fun, energetic class to help kids burn off energy while working on learning steps, combinations, and memorizing as they dance to a variety of songs. Dancers learn a series of 8-count steps to popular music that they can sing along to and show off at home! We expand on Jazz technique while incorporating fun Hip Hop moves to encourage individuality and build confidence and self-esteem. This class also works on enhancing listening skills, cooperation, and social skills in and out of the classroom. Students need to have strong focus and active participation to be successful.

Glowing Stars Adaptive Class (30 minutes):

This class is not currently available. Please check back or contact us for details.

Our music and movement class for adaptive needs students is aimed at helping student initiate movements and rhythms while having fun! Movement is important for everyone of all ages and abilities, so we want to help your child stay active and grow mentally and physically. This class will help students express themselves through non-verbal means – through movement – which helps build confidence and socialization through the freedom of self-expression! We talk about animals, feelings, experiences, etc. so it is fun and light-hearted while using our muscles and smiling! We focus on body movement, not a series of steps. We use props to help with motor skills as well, making our classes exciting and fresh each week! We hope you join us!
