At six years old or fast approaching, the students still love to engage their sense of play and imagination in the dance class, and creative, improvisational experiences are always part of the class. At the same time, many young dancers at this age can strike a stunning arabesque at the barre, present a tendu side at the sound of the words; and all can do their plies with rounded arms and gently turned-out toes. Their experiences in this class provide strong and supportive preliminary skills and abilities that prepare them for the next level of training and growth, the A-level. Our Saturday class will include an introduction of Tap dance at the end of class!
