Dance - Ballet/Jazz Combo for K thru 4th grade (click on Semester link to register)
Class Description: This hybrid class merges the structured technical foundation of ballet and the energetic, fun style of jazz. Since ballet is the best foundation for a dancer, each class will begin with ballet barre exercises to strengthen and train muscles. Classical ballet technique and terminology will be taught both through center floor and across the floor combinations and exercises. After the ballet portion, dancers will enjoy upbeat jazz choreography set to popular music. This is a great class for those new to dance and those that wish to polish their technique. Minimum Class Size: 8 - Max Class Size: 15
Cost: $250 Spring Semester
