Level 1 Program
Boys & Girls Ages 9-18

Level 1 is for any dancer who is 9 years old & older with 0-2 years of experience in each style.  Years of experience starts after dancers complete the Mini Program and are a part of our Recreational Program.  All 2021-2022 dancers graduating from the Mini Program are to start at Level 1 for all subjects (with the exception of Acro), regardless of prior experience.  

Acro is based on safe and effective progressions in five areas; flexibility, strengthening, balancing, limbering and tumbling, similar to floor gymnastics.  Dancers entering the Recreational Program may select Level 2 Acro, if dancers are able to properly execute a front limber and backbend kickover.  

Ballet is a Classical dance form demanding strength, grace and precision.  Ballet is used as the foundation in all dance forms.  

Hip Hop is best described as high energy and original.  Strengthening and conditioning will help build a solid foundation for Breaking, Locking, Housing and more.  

Jazz combines the technique of Ballet and Modern dance with the current forms of popular dance.  Jazz has its own vocabulary ranging from isolations to the movement of the entire body.  The Jazz curriculum includes stretching, jumps, rhythm and various styles of movement.  

Lyrical is a fusion of Jazz and Ballet styles with a concentration of Ballet technique.  Lyrical focuses on fluid movements and expressive emotion.  We highly recommend all Lyrical students take a weekly Ballet class.

 

Musical Theater is a combination of dancing and acting, similar to what would be seen in musicals and Broadway shows.  Dancers learn to incorporate a personality or story line into their dancing.

Tap is a percussive style of dance.  Its name comes from the tapping sound made when metal plates on the dancer’s shoes touch the floor.  Students will learn to understand rhythm and timing while working on footwork and agility.
