2012-2013 Academic Year

Ballet Technique & Pointe Jazz/Hip-Hop Tap BeMoved® for Adults Family Dance (like Mommy & Me) Pre-School Creative Dance Kids—Teens—Adults

Other Popular Classes Family Dance (Mom/Dad + toddler): A fun dance exercise experience that parents share with their 1½ to 3 year old child. 45 minute classes focus on gentle stretches, balance, rhythm, coordination and more. Creative Dance I: Your pre-schooler’s introduction to the joy of dance! This class is perfect for children ages 3-4 who are pottytrained and ready to dance without Mom or Dad. All structures of a traditional dance class are introduced, including etiquette, warmup, barre work, movement through space and levels, terminology, and creative expression. Dance stories and activities reinforce learning, and students may participate in the annual recital. Creative Dance II: Designed for 4-year-olds with previous dance training and 5-year-olds who are relatively new to dance, this 1 hour class follows the same structure as Creative Dance I but adds more challenging elements, terminology and patterns and moves at a faster pace. Ballet for Skaters, Gymnasts, Dance Team: A focused class for those who need ballet to enhance their athletic performance. Proper placement of head, arms and upper body while doing leaps, turns, and extensions is emphasized, as is flexibility and fluidity of movement. BeMoved®: BeMoved is a new dance fitness experience designed by Sherry Zunker. Classes begin with easy-to-follow therapeutic movements that integrate the upper and lower body. The warm up flows into dance styles inspired by a wide variety of musical genres, such as Bollywood, jazz, Latin, and disco.
