Creative Movement/Ballet classes are designed for young children for the purpose of enabling them to master the basic motor skills such as skipping, jumping, leaping, and galloping. It is through creative movement in basic technique that simple dances are created to introduce students to the basic concepts of dance: body/action, space, body awareness, rhythm, coordination, balance, and social skills.
Pre-ballet is a class devoted to establishing the basic vocabulary and fundamental elements of classical ballet technique. Students learn the five positions of arm and feet, while learning the basic alignment of the body. This class provides the foundation for all further areas of dance training such as ballet, contemporary jazz and pointe.
Ballet training builds strength, flexibility, and core stability. Students study the movements and vocabulary of the art of ballet. Our ballet classes offer a progressive study of classical ballet technique, with a contemporary ballet influence at the advanced level. Students placement is determined by the number of years of past dance training and ability.
Jazz is a fast-paced, fun movement class targeting turns, leaps, and flexibility. This class incorporates body isolations, stretching and strengthening, and is accompanied by contemporary music. A students placement is determined by the number of years past dance training and ability. Previous ballet experience is not required, but strongly recommended in conjunction with this class.
Hip-hop is a dynamic class that provides students with the latest trends in the constant changing style. Dancers should expect to receive fast-paced progressions and choreography. Hip Hop is designed to improve dancers rhythm and cordination and promotes a strong understanding of beats and musicality. A students placement is determined by a number of years of past dance training and ability.
Tap is for anyone interested in learning the basic fundamentals of tap. Tap dancers will use their feet to create rhythmic patterns and timely beats.
Ballet/Tap Combo is a beginning level class dedicated to establishing basic knowledge and vocabulary in the areas of ballet and tap.
BDA is determined to provide a schedule that meets the needs and desires of our dancers.
