In our combo class, dancers will first learn basic steps, positions, and terminology for ballet. They will develop coordination and balance as well as improve flexibility through age and skill appropriate lessons. Dancers will also have their first opportunity to perform in the annual recital!
A typical combo class will start with a warm-up exercise and stretching then dancers will move to the center to work on technique. About 20 minutes into class, dancers will change from ballet slippers to tap shoes. In the second half of the class, dancers will learn basic tap steps as well as practice rhythms with various instruments and props. The end of class will be used to work on choreography for the recital.
