This Class is perfect for the little dancer who wants to learn the basics of Ballet. We divide the class time for each genre. We begin with Ballet because it is the best way to "warm" the body and prepare for the entire class. The Ballet techniques introduced include: 1st position, 2nd position, plié, chasé, passé, tendu, arabesque, sauté and more. This class is very active and interactive allowing the dancer to learn at their own level while nurturing the organic, creative part of each young dancer in the room.
The Tap portion begins 30 to 40 minutes into the class but moves quickly into active learning as the students are psyically warmed and eager to "move" about the room. The Tap techniques taught include:
heel drops, dig heels, toe tap, brush, spank, tips, toes, leap toe, chasse`, shuffle and more.
KIDS LEVEL: We move through these techniques and forms steadily throughout the Session and Dance Year adding more locomotion and begin combining techniques, forms and steps to begin the feel of "choreogaphy", staying within the ability of the ages in the room.
SPRING FOCUS: The dancer continues to work on basic positions, technique, around-the-room exercises, warm-up & stretching regime, partnering and group skills and "Line Leader" opportunities. We begin to put steps together that form combinations, form a series of combinations leading to "choreography". We are working toward a Dance during the SPRING Session.
