Ballet/Tap Level I
Ballet for this age group focuses on the same basic concepts that are covered in our Teen/Adult classes. There is less traditional barre work and more independent movement. Balance, hopping, skipping, jumping, galloping, age appropriate stretches, basic positions of the feet and arms, the concept of parallel vs. turned out legs and feet, and ballet class etiquette are part of the curriculum. Students learn ballet terminology. The last 20 minutes of the class goes int basic Tap steps and focus strongly on music count.
