Our Dance program is constructed in levels. Most genres (except Character, Liturgical, & Ballroom) follow this system:
- Level 1: Creative Movement (ages 3 – 4)
- Level 2: Ballet/Jazz I (ages 4-6)
- Level 3: Ballet/Jazz II (ages 5-6)
- Level 4 – 8: Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary/Modern, Tap, Clogging (most begin at age 7, students are placed by teachers by age and skill level)
Ballet/Jazz is a one-hour class, and is part of our beginner dance curriculum for ages 4-6. Students’ class time will include divided training in both ballet and jazz. The two dance forms are complementary, assisting students in developing coordination and providing a solid foundation in dance technique. By the end of the year they will learn and perform two dances; one ballet piece and one jazz number.
