Ages 4-6: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical Combo Classes, Hip Hop, and Acrobatics Classes. Our Mini classes aim to nurture and enhance your child's passion for dance, movement, and music. In these classes, we introduce Acrobatics, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, and Tap, combined with Ballet. At this stage, young dancers are encouraged to explore a Ballet combo class along with another dance style, allowing them to discover their love for dance even more!
Ages 7-9 - These classes are for the dancers that are ready to take dance to the next level! Our Petite dancers take tailored, focused classes based on their personal interests and passions. This progression is the next step into creating their positive dance experience, growth, and maturity. Our goal at Dance Expressions is to enhance the level of excellence in your dancer in a fun and supporting environment. Dancers are encouraged to take a ballet class but are not required to at the recreational level.
Junior / Teen
For Juniors (Ages 10-12) and Teens (Ages 13 and up) - We strongly encourage dancers aged 10 and above to include a ballet class in their dance curriculum, in addition to exploring the various dance genres we offer at Dance Expressions. While recreational dancers are not obligated to enroll in a ballet class, our faculty firmly believes that cultivating a solid foundation in dance involves incorporating ballet. Alongside ballet, these young dancers have the flexibility to choose from a variety of styles, including acrobatics, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, lyrical, technique, and more.
All committed and motivated dancers ages 5 and up are welcome to audition and join our team!
