This program serves as a transition from preschool to our level 2,3,4 recreational program. Level 1 is the perfect next step for preschool students as well as a wonderful introduction to dance for beginner 5, 6, and 7 year olds. Level 1 classes are structured more toward steps and skills while keeping the classroom upbeat and fun. Level 1 routines include more challenging but appropriate choreography, with more formation changes.
Level 1 Classes Offered:
This class meets one hour per week with a half hour of tap and a half hour of ballet. Students are taught basic beginner skills, steps, positions, and vocabulary.
This class is one hour per week. Class begins with a lively warm-up and proceeds to include tumbling skills such as forward and backward rolls, backbends, cartwheels and other tumbling progressions. Simple dance moves are also included in this class.
This class is one hour per week with a fun and active introduction into the styles of Jazz and Hip-hop. The recital dance will highlight both styles in a single routine for our show.
All Classes are designed for the 5 - 7 year old and kept fun and upbeat to hold their attention.
These classes are held on Tuesday afternoon (Tap/Ballet Combo & Acro/Dance), Wednesday afternoon (Hip/Hop Jazz Combo) and Saturday mornings (Tap/Ballet Combo & Acro/Dance). Our experienced, professional staff is trained in early childhood to ensure that your little one has a positive experience.
Level 1 students perform on stage without the aid of their teachers. One hour of class per week equals one routine in the show. Level 1 students perform in our Shamrock Showcase. All dancers are included in our signature Finale!
