Dancers and Dreamers - Balance Dance Studios | Dance Classes | Adults | Kids

Welcome to our Dancers and Dreams program! This program is designed expressly for imaginative 2-5 year old princesses, pirates, super heroes, movie stars, and fairies. Here dreams are realized as focus, practice and imagination result in confidence and achievement. Each class encourages students to champion their inherent talents, identify who they believe they can be, and create a memorable performance of which they can be proud of.

Your tiny dancer will twirl, tiptoe, and leap into fun-filled dance classes that explore the fundamentals of three different dance genres. Each class, your dancer will learn a new skill and track their progress with their very own dance passport. Once they have completed the curriculum they will receive a personalized certificate and graduate to the next level!

CLASSIC COMBO

Tiny dancers will be building strength, flexibility, motor skills, counting and storytelling while being introduced to the elements of tap and ballet technique and vocabulary. They will gain confidence as they learn how to dance to the beat of the music and understand how to follow directions and class etiquette within a structured classroom environment.

Attire: Ballet Shoes, Tap Shoes, Leotard and Tights (no specific color) for girls,  T-shirt and leggings for boys.

 

FAIRYTALE BALLET

Themed, whimsical pre-ballet class where favorite familiar tales are used to learn movement and characterization. Among other curriculum milestones, dancers will learn classroom structure, etiquette and ballet terminology.

FUNKY MONKEY / ACRO

Jump and Tumble through the basics of acrobatics! Dancers will toss and tumble, cartwheel and roll, while being introduced to strong dance elements. They will work on core and upper body strength, coordination, stretching, and finding the beat and rhythm within the music, as well as class etiquette and structure.

Attire: Bare Feet, Leotard and Shorts or biketard (no specific color) for girls, T-shirt and shorts or biketard for boys.

 

CREATIVE MOVEMENT

Creative Movement introduces little ones to the world of dance utilizing ballet and rhythm concepts as well as imaginative storytelling through movement. We will use parachutes, music sticks, follow-along dance and sing-along songs to get your tots moving and grooving. Dancers are encouraged to try to come into class alone, but we welcome parents sitting in the room until their dancers are comfortable. The goal of the class structure is to build independence and get your little dancers ready for a full dance class on their own. We cant wait to dance with you! 

 

PRE-BALLET (PREVIOUSLY PRIMA BALLERINA) 

Pre Ballet is a class designed for our Dancers and Dreamers who are ready to really focus on ballet and begin transitioning into a true ballet structured class ( but still with a little bit of imaginative play and movement). It is also a great class for young students (Ages 5-6)  who have never taken a ballet class before to learn the basics of ballet before they venture into a Ballet L1 class.  Students should be six years old by the beginning of the semester fall. 

Attire: Ballet Shoes, Leotard and Tights (no specific color) for girls,  T-shirt and leggings for boys.
