Our Foundations class is exactly what it sounds like–the class that begins to create a strong technical foundation in young dancers! Designed specifically for ages 4.5-5.5, Foundations will prepare dancers for the next level by introducing proper technique and placement as well as encourage them to explore their own creativity.
Class begins with beginner ballet technique, stretching, and basic jazz technique. Dancers then travel across the floor to practice steps including skips, gallops, and turns–just like the “big girls!” At the end of class, dancers practice counting music and different rhythmic patterns during tap shoe time! Dancers also learn basic tap steps, eventually building up to create short tap combinations.
Dancers enrolled in Foundations will learn to patiently wait their turn, encourage other dancers, and explore their artistic creativity through games and structured activities.
