Comfortable clothes they can move freely in. Students may bring ballet shoes, sneakers or may dance barefoot.  Pink Ballet shoes are required to participate in the recital.

45 minute class for students ages 3-4 years old.  This class teaches the fundamentals of Ballet, Jazz and Hip Hop.  In Ballet, students benefit from the development of coordination, muscle strength, motor and listening skills along with musical and spatial awareness.  Jazz is a style of dance that is structured in technique while taking many shapes and forms.  It can be performed to a vast variety of style music from Broadway to Pop.  Hip Hop is an upbeat style of dance performed to popular music.  Although Hip Hop’s roots came from urban street dancing, it has become increasingly popular in the entertainment world.  Jazz and Hip Hop take on many forms and are continually changing and evolving.  We will combine the upbeat dancing style of Hip Hop with the technique of Jazz.  All music selections and dance moves are age appropriate.  Students will begin with Ballet and finish with Jazz/Hip Hop.  Students may bring ballet shoes, sneakers or may dance barefoot.  Pink Ballet shoes are required to participate in the recital.

The recital is optional, however, your dancer can still participate in class and learn the routines. Please see below for more information regarding recital.
