Three & Four year olds
These classes are a combination of pre-ballet, tap, and
tumbling. We have developed a very effective program for our
youngest students. Concentrating on gross motor skills and group
skills using music and movement promotes a great environment for
a positive learning experience.
Five & Six year olds
These classes are a combination of ballet and tap. At this point,
we start to emphasize technique. Ballet is taught using the Cecchetti
method, and tap steps progress through a series of graded exercises.
We incorporate exercises into group activities using the latest
appropriate music to help motivate the children. Strict turnout
is not advocated until the students are a few years older with more
mature bones and muscles.
Older Students and Adults
As students grow, they are grouped according to age and/or
ability. Jazz is an exciting addition to the combination classes
for these dancers. We use upbeat, age-appropriate music and
educate them to all styles of jazz
dancing from broadway to hip hop moves. Pre-pointe ballet and
pointe classes are available
for dancers deemed ready for this advanced discipline.
Instructors will judge each individual’s state of readiness. We
teach contemporary dance using
techniques from groundbreaking choreographers. Self-discovery
and free movement around your center are emphasized during
lessons. Hip hop class is a fun
way to get a workout. Energetic moves with street style are
taught to clean, popular music.
Our capable staff teach karate classes for ages 4
and above. The classes are 45 minutes once per week and are open
to boys and girls. American Kenpo Karate teaches self-defense, self-confidence,
assertiveness, goal orientation, calmness, and concentration.

Preschool for the Arts
Look no further for
your little ones' extracurricular activities! In our preschool,
kids benefit from a well-rounded curriculum designed to meet
their individual learning needs socially, intellectually, and
physically. Character development goes hand in hand with
ABCs and 123s. In addition to traditional classroom
"centers", students receive lessons in
DANCE, MUSIC, KARATE,
Audition to be a part
of our Performance Company for ages 8-18. We'll perform at
community events throughout the year, go to a convention to take
classes from famous choreographers, and go to competitions in
the spring. Our goal for these serious dancers is to give them
the opportunity to learn faster, get more stage experience, and
gain confidence in their talent to reach toward their potential.
