1st / 2nd
1st/2nd Grade Academy Dance Classes are perfect for both returning and brand new dancers! These classes create a fun, loving and supportive environment for your child to develop a passion for dance and grow in their abilities. Our curriculum is designed to provide age-appropriate instruction and choreography that will both challenge your child, and keep them engaged and having fun!
Our 2019 Session is now open for registration! Our session runs through May 2019. Students will spend the session developing dance technique, skills and choreography. Dancers have an opportunity to perform during the year at our fall and spring recitals! 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 season long! Please see below for more information on our recitals, class offerings and session details!
Leveling - 2019 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 or Acro as their second class). 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.
