5th / 6th
5th/6th Grade Academy Dance Classes are designed to fit the needs of both returning students and brand new dancers! Our curriculum blends foundational work along with more challenging options and skill development. Beginner and intermediate level students can expect to be challenged, grow in their dance abilities, and have fun!
Our 2018 Summer Session is now open for registration! Our session runs June - August 2018. Students will spend the summer developing dance technique, skills and choreography. Unique to BCA, dancers have an opportunity to perform in a free recital at the beautiful Frame Park at the end of the session! This allows students to work towards goals as individuals and a class, while also creating an environment for a variety of progressive instruction, building on their dance education all year long! Please see below for more information on our recitals, class offerings and session details!
Creative Arts Camps
Looking for some additional fun for the summer? We have camps for all ages! Read about our unique creative arts camps from cake decorating, creating music videos, fine arts camps such as drawing and painting, and more!
Leveling - Fall 2017 / 2018 Session
Our levels provide a "just-right" fit for your dancer to excel at her highest potential, meeting her specific needs, focusing in on specific areas of growth and challenging her all year long! All dancers are evaluated and receive placement recommendations which include suggested class levels and class options.
Classes will introduce your dancer to the foundational skills of each dance style. Level 1 classes are designed for newer dancers or dancers transitioning into an older age group next year. Dancers will master these skills during the year, and increase their dance vocabulary, to drive each student to the next level! Classes will meet once a week, and dancers will complete the session having mastered these skills and their dance vocabulary!
Classes and will focus on more challenging technique and choreography. Level 2 dancers have developed their foundational skills, and are ready for more advanced curriculum. Level 2 dancers can take one class, but are strongly encouraged to take two classes to excel their growth and learning.
Classes are for advanced level Academy Dance students who are ready to take their dancing to new heights! Students who are recommended for our Level 3 program will be required to take two Level 3 classes per week (or one Level 3 class plus Russian Ballet). Level 3 will challenge students in their technical abilities, choreography and skill work. Our Level 3 classes will provide new, advanced curriculum and higher level programming than we have ever offered in Academy Dance before.
