Dance Classes: 

Pre-School Programs: 

We offer our Sparkle/Comet Program to all of our Pre-School & Kindergarten Kids. We have spent time designing a program to match the needs and desires of your little one while still giving them the dance basics that they will need later in dance. 

Sometimes we do a combo class of the Shimmer Sparkles and Glimmer Sparkles so that we meet class size regulations as well as have a more enjoyable experince. 

Shimmer Sparkles: (2 years -3.5 years old) 30 min class teaching them Basic Ballet with flavors of Tap and Jazz Movements. The first few weeks of this class we focus on working through separation anxiety and getting used to the classroom environment. 

Glimmer Sparkles: (3.5 years-4.5 years old) 30 min class teaching them the Basic Tap & Ballet with flavors of Jazz. We begin to transfer basic knowledge of movements into basic knowledge of dance along with working through class room etiquette. 

Dazzle Sparkles: (Kindergarten) 45 min class teaching them Basic Tap, Ballet, & Jazz. We are moving the knowledge they should already know about movement and directly relating it to dance, the classroom, and start applying it to technique. They should be able to start using the correct terminology of the movements and be able to execute most of them by themselves. They should also already have a good grasp of classroom etiquette. 

Shooting Comets: (4 years-6 years old BOYS ONLY) 30 min class designed especially for young boys. Boy learn and move differently from girls especially at the pre-school kindergarten age groups. In this class we will teach Basic Tap, Jazz, & Hip Hop along with basic movement skills and classroom etiquette.
