Preschool & Combo
Our Preschool and Combo classes are a great way to expose young dancers to the fundamentals of dance. Our classes consist of Ballet as well as either Jazz or Tap to build a strong foundation for your dancer to continue to build on as they progress through the years. Students will have the opportunity to perform in the year end recital, a fun experience for all of our dancers.
Jazz technique explores the isolations of head, shoulders, ribs and hips. Jazz incorporates dynamic traveling progressions across the floor from jazz runs to leaps and turns. The foundation and technique developed from studying Jazz is tremendous. Dancers studying it gain coordination, control , and most of all flexibility- all of which are important in achieving splits, leaps and exciting turn sequences found in Jazz choreography. Styles that range from street Jazz to Broadway are incorporated in our program. Jazz is a favorite for all ages.
