Discover Dance II - 510302

This is usually the students second year of dance and is geared toward ages 4 1/2 -5 1/2. This class is similar to Discover Dance I except students are now exposed to more steps and technical training. The creative process is a little more structured due to the students having a longer attention span. There is a great emphasis on musicality, rhythm, and counting. There is more time spent at the barre working on plies, releves, port de bras, proper body alignment, and reviewing the positions. In the center, turnout, pointing toes, and straightening the knees are reinforced through the introduction of tendu, pique, and pass. The across the floor exercises of chasse and leaping are introduced and enhance these skills. Skipping and swaying are emphasized more thoroughly in the creative movement section of class.

Introduction to Dance - 510303

This class is a transition class between the pre-school classes and the beginning level classes. Introduction is usually a combination of ballet, tap, and jazz for children 5 1/2 -6 1/2 years old. This class is similar to Discover Dance II but there is more of an emphasis on the correct and careful ballet technique and body alignment. The last 15 minutes of class is geared toward basic tap and jazz technique. With 5 year olds with no dance experience, Discover Dance II might be suitable for that student, but lots of beginning 5 year olds do fine in Intro. To Dance. This all depends on the childs individual developmental rate. Parents should base their decision on their knowledge of their childs personality and capacity. This class is a great opportunity for children to be introduced to the different dance forms and styles in an encouraging and supportive environment. Tap always begins the fourth week of class!

A basic technical foundation develops in this level where the students will focus on mastering their coordination skills and motor skills (hopping, jumping, skipping, galloping, and balance). Once mastering these skills, students will be better equipped to handle the Irish combinations as they get more difficult.
