Twos in Tutus
This class is our intro class to the tiniest of dancers! In here, we will begin to explore ballet basics and creative movement through follow-along songs, games, and other activities. We encourage dancers to dance in the room by themselves but understand mom/dad might need to help out the first few weeks while the kiddos are getting comfortable with the new surroundings! This is a great way for your kiddo to meet new friends and get some of that energy out in a healthy way!
These classes are perfect for dancers with little to no dance experience. Students 2-4 years old will learn the basics of tap, ballet, and tumbling while children 5 and older will learn the basics of tap, ballet, and jazz. Combo classes provide a fun, nurturing, and educational way to introduce your child to learn the fundamentals of tap, ballet, and jazz or tumbling.
Dancers will learn fun, upbeat choreography to age appropriate pop and hip-hop music. They will also learn across-the-floor combos, activities, and games that encourage dancers to become comfortable in their movement style. As dancers progress, they will be introduced to new skills and styles of hip-hop as well.
Tumble tots is an introductory class to our acro program. In here, dancers will learn foundational skills to gain strength and flexibility. We focus on properly executing the basics to give dancers a solid place to start moving up the ladder in acro levels I, II, and III. Tumbling is often the favorite portion of our combo classes, so this class is sure to be a hit for your little one!
Acro-dance is a class in which dancers will focus on gaining strength, flexibility, and control. It takes elements of tumbling and contortion and applies them in ways that allow the skills to be incorporated into other styles of dance. Acro-dance classes will have an instructor (and assistant when needed) which allows each student to receive the attention then need to succeed.
Jazz/lyrical classes are choreography and movement -based classes. Dancers will come in each week learning a new combo. Although having strong technique and skills are great, the ability to pick up choreography, stay on the counts, and build artistry is just as important as dancers progress in their dance careers.
This class is perfect for those dancers that want to enhance their technique and skills. Dancers will work in the center and across the floor to help execute and strengthen their leaps, turns, and other skills used in various styles of dance. Whether they are looking to improve the skills learned in a TBJ class or make their school dance team, technique is the perfect class to clean up dance skills.
Ages: 6-18 yrs
Ballet is the foundation of dance. This is a highly recommended class for all dancers because the technique learned during ballet training can be applied to all other styles of dance. Ballet is a physically demanding artform that continues to push dancers throughout their dance career. They will focus on enhancing their technique, control, and poise.
This is a style of dance that really focuses on building a dancer’s rhythm and ability to count music. Dancers will wear fitted shoes with metal taps on the heel and toe of each shoe and will learn steps that utilize these taps. Tap dance provides a fun, challenging way to further your dance education.
Strength & Flex
Strength and flex is a GREAT class for everyone! It is especially great for those wish to enhance their overall strength and flexibility. This class makes exercise and stretching fun! It serves as a supplement to activities such as dance, acro, and gymnastics.
Musical theater is similar to jazz in that dancers will learn combos in class, but the primary focus is to work on developing the ability to really portray a character through their dance. Oftentimes, the songs used in this class will be from movies, shows, or musicals. This class is GREAT for those who are outgoing, energetic, and maybe even a little silly.
