Students will work to further develop their understanding of dance terminology, continue to build proficiency with tap and ballet steps, strengthen their bodies with developmentally appropriate dance exercises, and enjoy expanding their creativity with improvisation and game playing. Terms will end with an in house presentation for family and friends. Additional performances added in the term will be presented to parents as they become available.

Dancers, both new and those returning from Ballet/Tap 3-5, will further explore freedom of expression through dance and movement. We incorporate various routines of both styles of dance using choreographed and improvised games and exercises. In ballet we include an introduction to classical music with various warm ups using beginner ballet steps, technique and dance games. For tap time, we’ll explore our beginner steps and technique while moving and grooving to upbeat music that will have all our dance students carrying a song in their heart and rhythm in their feet the whole week long.
