CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

PRINCESS BALLERINA

Designed for students that are 3-6 years old who have not entered 1st grade. This is an imaginative, theme based class that prepares the youngest dancers for our Lower School using a variety of props, songs and creative movement. (tap & ballet)

TAP

Tap is a combination of dance styles performed in tap shoes. Tap allows us to perform percussion with our feet and helps dancers develop rhythmic sensitivity and musicality. We introduce Broadway, Rhythmic, Street and more. 

COMBO CLASS

A combination of Jazz & Tap giving students an enthusiastic introduction to dance. This course introduces students to movement and music while strengthening self confidence. 

JAZZ

Jazz is known for the freedom of movement. Jazz is derived from ballet but uses more parallel shapes and choreography. Jazz can use music from Broadway, Pop, Lyrical and other current styles. 

BALLET

We are excited to offer the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) at PE. Ballet is the most classical form of dance, creating the basic technique required for all dancers. Ballet becomes a "way of life" for all serious performers and the training will beneficial in any type of organized dance or musical performance.

CONTEMPORARY

Contemporary dance is associated with the more recent composers and music of our time. Contemporary combines many styles of movement to give the choreographer and dance wide range of movement possibilities and many times tells a story  in the choreography.
