Young Dancer Program

[K-2nd grades]


The Young Dancer Program is designed to build dance fundamentals such as proper posture and alignment.  Basic Ballet vocabulary and Modern dance concepts are introduced using imagery to enliven technical concepts.  With each year of training, students build upon dance and rhythmic skills.  During the September to May season, students have the option to take Tap as a second class, and at the 2nd grade level, students may take Ballet and/or Modern Dance and have the option of also taking Tap.
