Junior Children's Division Dance
Ages 7 to 12 Years
In our junior division dance classes, we provide a friendly, nurturing environment where each student can advance and grow. At this level, we emphasize classical training and proper classroom etiquette. Students will learn proper terminology, musicality, and technical skill while developing a love and appreciation for the art of dance. Junior Division Dance Classes that are offered include ballet, contemporary/jazz/modern, tap, conditioning, acro/tumbling, and hip hop for ages 6 and over.
A traditionally structured ballet class incorporating the next level in the classical ballet syllabus. We incorporate extended work on barre and center technique, followed with tap and jazz exercises and combinations to broaden musicality and reflex skills.
A one-hour class of classical ballet focusing on proper technique and terminology for barre, center, and across the floor work. Followed by a half-hour of jazz/contemporary and a half-hour of the tap. Arco and tumbling are a fun addition to class when not concentrating on choreography.
Building upon our classical foundations we are focusing on strengthening and preparing the dancer for all the rigors of pointe work by focusing on proper body placement and poise for the introductory years before pointe work.
