Special Movers:

dancers who are mobile but need additional assistance.

All classes will begin with a warm-up, then stretch- some will have more conditioning time depending on age and genre. Classes will consist of center work, across the floor, and/or a combination. Ballet classes will also incorporate barre work.  


*Conditioning will take on the form of traditional push up, sit ups, etc., but we also use games, specifically for the younger dancers. So, if you see your 2nd graders playing leap frog just know that they're using some serious muscles for this activity! 


*Dance combinations are often used for 2-3 weeks in each class, adding on each week. This teaches dancers to learn quickly and polish dances. We also have students use improvisation techniques to bring out their inner choreographer! We feel VERY strongly that these techniques encourage overall creativity & provides a fun & athletic outlet for kids!
