*PRE-BALLET  This is a structured program designed for the early development of technical ballet and movement. It precisely meets the needs and limitations of pre-school aged children by providing a carefully paced sequence of exercises to develop physical conditioning with poise and grace. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, the activities are presented through music. In the program, children learn self-discipline, listening skills, coordination skills, left and right discrimination and patterns in movement. 

**TAP-BALLET  The class teaches 20 minutes of tap and 25 minutes of ballet. Since ballet is the basis for all dance technique, the combination of Tap and Ballet work hand in hand. The technical training is taught through ballet, which in turn helps teach the proper shifting of weights and patterns in movement for tap. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, all activities are executed to fun music.

***JAZZ  An exciting dance class that offers a wide range of fun and upbeat movement! Children will learn self-discipline, listening skills, coordination skills, left and right discrimination, patterns in movement, along with ballet, tap, and jazz dance technique. Students will also be exposed to Broadway and fun, popular styles of dance.
