Welcome to our 2022-2023 season! This year, we are restructuring our classes and our curriculum to improve individual growth and foster a stronger mindset for advancement in technical skills.
For most classes: 30 mins has been added to include conditioning: strengthening and stretching exercises. Dancers with multiple classes on the same day will only have one conditioning session. The schedule below reflects this added time. When you register, specific classes will require you to pick a conditioning time. This is the same thing.
Jazz/Hip Hop classes Fitted leggings/joggers/ sweatpants. Only Spandex shorts approx. fingertip length 2.5+ inch inseam. No loose fitted shorts, nor jeans. Shirts: fitted, no spaghetti strap shirts unless another shirt is over. Belly button covered. A leotard or fitted shirt under loose shirts. No undergarments showing. Proper respect to the body is to be shown and properly covered. Hair is to be in a pony or bun at all times.
REQUIRED: Boys/Girls: Tan Jazz Shoes plus smooth bottom shoes that are soft/flexible or more bendable in the arch work best for hip-hop. (required color: black shoes with white soles) No tennis/gym shoes with grip,No black soled shoes. Please bring separate dance shoes that are not everyday school shoes. This will help protect dance floor and keep dance floor cleaner. Have a “Designated DANCE BAG”.
Ballet classes Girls: Black short sleeve leotards, pink tights, Pink ballet shoes. Black bike shorts can be worn over leotard. Boys: White T-Shirt, Black legging/biker pants, black socks, black ballet shoes.
Creative Ballet Classes All Pink: leotard, tights, and shoes. Black leotard works too. But pink is recommended.
Walmart, Target, and Shoe Carnival have reasonable prices on leotards, tights, and shoes. You can also check out Kids Again and Amazon.
How to Determine Appropriate Class Level
* If you are unsure between two levels, you can take both classes and then drop one with teacher approval, or schedule a private lesson for an assessment.
