Ballet is the basis of all dance forms. We strongly encourage that ballet be taken in conjunction with any other dance class. Beginning ballet will focus on the basics of ballet, including terminology and placement. Intermediate levels will place emphasis on understanding the technique as well as posture and body positions. Advanced levels will be a continual study of fundamentals, including precision, technique and emotional expression.

Combination Classes/Teen Combo
Combo classes will consist of ballet, tap, and jazz. Classes offer choreography focusing on large and fine motor skills. Children get to interact with others their own age while learning the basics of dance. The teen combo class prepares teens who do not have a lot of dance experience for our more advanced classes and consists of ballet, tap and jazz.
Pom classes focus on jumps, leaps, kicks and skills needed to prepare students for junior high and high school teams. We offer recreational and competitive poms. The competitive team will compete at local competitions.
Competitive classes give students more performance opportunities throughout the year. Students will be invited to attend conventions and competitions. If you are interested in being a part of the company please indicate that on the registration form.
