Your teen will reach new heights in our dance and aerial arts programs, and aspiring ballerinas can jump on into our new ballet program!
Students in our Dance Foundations and Aerial Arts programs receive a solid dance education, whether they are dancing on the floor or in the air. No previous experience is required! Students who are interested in pursuing more advanced ballet – including pointe work – can consider adding our Essential Ballet program to their schedule starting autumn 2018.
Our Dance Foundations class is our signature movement program. By joining this 85 minute class, your teen will hold the keys to unlock their potential, both in and outside of dance class. Ballet technique will hone their understanding of placement and line, and contemporary dance technique will challenge them to take up space and assert their presence through movement. Movement games give them a chance to exercise their own creativity in a low-key, low-risk environment.
Your teen will learn the secret to standing on, leaning out from and spinning on aerial fabric in this fun and challenging 55 minute class. They will increase their endurance through practicing movement sequences, and will hone their understanding through observing their classmates and through recording their work in their log books.
We recommend students who take aerial arts at our studio also take our Dance Foundations class, as the classes work in tandem to develop the form and artistry required to advance in the art form.
Students wear long, close-fitting clothing that covers the backs of knees, under arms, inside of elbows, and torso and back. Water bottles are a must!
Does your teen pine for the day when they can rise up on their toes and dance en pointe? Are they serious about ballet and ready for the hard work and commitment that perfecting this art form entails? Our Essential Ballet program takes students through more advanced ballet work through twice-a-week dedicated ballet classes that work in tandem with the Dance Foundation program.
Our Essential Ballet program will be available beginning in autumn 2018. Like all of our programs, Essential Ballet is open to all genders.
