Ballet/Tap Combination Class is the perfect class for the 4-6 year old. In this class, we will explore beginning ballet technique/terminology which will help to develop muscular strength, gross motor skills, balance and self discipline. In addition to the ballet, we will add some beginning tap skills which promote strength in feet and legs, fine motor skills as well as a raised understanding of music and rhythm. Both styles require focus and concentration but with a different feel. While ballet is more graceful and classic, tap is more quick paced and spontaneous. The combination together makes for a fantastic beginning journey in the wonderful world of dance. The material will be presented in a fun, creative, learning environment.
* This class meets once/week on either Wednesday OR Friday from 5:30-6:15 pm.
One section should be chosen as the dancer's weekly class.
The Ballet/Tap/Jazz Combo class is a great way for the student to experience three different dance genres in one class. Ballet with its grace, strength, long lines and discipline; Tap with its fine motor skills and attention to musicality; and Jazz with its flexibility and freedom all come together in a fun, cohesive class while the dancers learn to express themselves through a variety of movement. Combo classes mix variety, creativity, discipline, friendship and learning into one fun-filled lesson.
