Our interactive and exciting classes in creative movement and pre ballet are designed specifically for children ages 3-6. Our courses combine dance and physical education, which has been shown to positively influence the physical and mental development of children. Our classes can greatly increase the development of your child's coordination, technique, focus, dedication, rhythm, musicality, stretching, and even improve acting as we help them turn their creativity into productivity. Every class is designed to meet the needs of each individual child. In order to achieve individual goals set for each child, we recommend 2 to 3 classes a week. Each child, upon audition, will have the incredible opportunity to participate in the Winter and Spring Productions.
Levels 1, 2, 3- Teaching the fundamental basics of ballet technique, musicality, coordination, and artistic expression, increasing their stamina and balance according to your child's age and natural abilities.
Levels 4, 5- Challenging our students to push their physical boundaries and prepare their muscles for increasingly difficult turns, elevated jumps, and strong musicality.
Level 6, 7, 8- Transition to harder technique and aptitude in different variations of pirouettes and jumps.
It's never too late to learn ballet. Have you always dreamed of taking ballet classes but feel like it's too late? Do you feel like you are too old to get into a leotard and ballet slippers. Although professional ballerinas start at an early age, it's never too late to learn ballet. Adult ballet classes offer a fun way to tone and tighten your body while learning the fundamental techniques of ballet. If you have never danced before, a beginner's class would be perfect for you. Beginner classes start slowly, teaching the beginning positions of ballet, so there is no reason to be intimidated. However, if you are a former dancer and want to return to ballet after several years, you will be placed in a class based upon your fitness and skill level. Taking part in an adult ballet class is good for your body as well as your mind. Besides promoting cardiovascular fitness and good posture, ballet is very enjoyable for people of all ages. Follow your passion and try a ballet class.
WHAT TO WEAR
If you feel uncomfortable wearing tights
and a leotard, simply wear a
T-shirt and sweatpants. Just be sure to wear something
that allows you to move freely .
There is, in nearly every sport, an element of ballet. Gymnastics is of no exception. Not only do gymnasts need the strength to lift themselves high off the ground in their routines, but the strength to land their elaborate jumps. In gymnastics, oftentimes gymnasts are trained on a special floor that cushions landings, however, this floor also enforces landing improperly in a way that can cause a variety of injuries, specifically injuries of the knees and back. In our gymnastics program, we develop the technique needed to safely land and complete strenuous movements, while also ensuring that the material that is taught is sculpted to individually fit the needs of each gymnast and their repertoire. We offer one-on-one coaching that conditions gymnasts to implement the precision of ballet into their routines, going through and cleaning each individual movement with them. Additionally, we use a variety of different stretches and exercises in order to develop the flexibility and strength of our gymnasts. We work with gymnasts on turns, jumps, and transitioning gracefully from each movement to the next, fusing the artistry of ballet with the powerful nature of gymnastics.
There is no element of forgiveness in the nature of figure skating – skaters are forced to jump and land on stiff ice. It is for this reason that we offer private classes designed uniquely for the needs of skaters. We aim to strengthen figure skaters enough in order for them to safely and successfully complete these complicated landings with grace on land, giving them a significant advantage when they try implement these jumps on the ice. Whether or not skaters are skating alone or with a partner (where they must also strengthen themselves enough to either lift or be lifted), it is vital to the well-being of skaters to pair the technique that ballet teaches with the complicated tricks that skaters must demonstrate on the ice. It is our goal to develop the flexibility and strength of skaters on land, teaching them to become more graceful and empowered on the ice.
