Tap

These classes provide an excellent way to further your child’s dance education after two or three years of Combination Dance classes.  Particular emphasis is placed on tap technique with instruction on stretching and flexibility included.  Students are prepared for examinations and competition participation (at teacher’s discretion).

Part Time Competitive

This program is for the student who is looking for a program to develop their training without the demand or commitment of the full time student.  Children will be prepared for exams at the teacher’s discretion (and if the child is interested) and a local competition in the disciplines they are taking.  Students can take as many hours as they are interested in however ballet is not a requirement.  Students will be placed in classes based on dance experience and age.

There will be three levels offered – Junior, Intermediate and Senior.  Classes will be split into smaller groups as numbers warrant.

All levels are 45 minutes in length
