DANCE CLASSES

ScheduleEnrollmentTuitionDress CodeTicket Information

As children advance in the School, the work becomes more structured and focused on muscular development, dance skills, and accuracy of execution. While we welcome all children to dance as it fits into their schedules, TBCDE recommends that children 6-yrs and older consider taking multiple classes per week. Repetition will assist with muscle memory and allow children to gain confidence in their learning skills.

PREPARATORY BALLET

Children ages 6 and 7 begin to learn technical skills, gain physical strength, and develop focus in a positive and encouraging atmosphere. Emphasis is on balance, posture, flexibility, strength, musicality and the discipline required for all dance forms. Preparatory Ballet 1 for age 6; Preparatory Ballet 2 for age 7.

BALLET FUNDAMENTALS

Ballet Fundamentals employs the skills learned in the Preparatory Classes to allow young dancers ages 8 and 9 to develop the fundamental elements required for classical ballet. Children develop their coordination and musicality and are introduced to the formal structure of a ballet class.

BEGINNER BALLET

These classes are designed to introduce teen students with no previous experience to ballet.  Students will learn the elements of ballet with a focus on physical awareness, musicality, expression, and basic ballet vocabulary.

JAZZ

Jazz dance is a dance style that first emerged in the United States in the early twentieth century. In a fast-paced and fun environment, students learn technique as well as dance combinations set to current music and improve their overall coordination and physical fitness.

TAP

Tap dancing is one of the most popular dance forms of all time. Tap classes develop coordination, rhythm, balance and concentration in a fun and stimulating environment.

 CONTEMPORARY DANCE

Contemporary dance developed during the mid-twentieth century and is an important part of a ballet dancers’ training. It employs elements of ballet with the use of the torso found in Modern dance. Contemporary dance also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation techniques.

Student age listed is by September 1, 2022.

Classes begin August 29, 2022.
