Dance develops the individual physically, artistically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially
in an artistic family environment. Depending on age, ability, and experience, students may participate
in Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Pointe, and Hip-Hop.
Creative Movement - Ages 3 to 4 Emphasis on fun and creativity, class encourages child's natural
movement, co-ordination, and muscle development. Mrs. Puffy will become each child's friend. Song
and dance and correct French vocabulary are used in class. Children experience the joy of singing and
dancing in a 30 minute class.
Combo Class - Ages 4 to 7 This class meets once a week for an hour. Pre-Ballet and Tap are taught in
one class, so students learn the basics of proper technique and vocabulary while having fun with both
styles of dance. Convenient for busy parents and students, this class helps our younger students develop
the self-confidence and skills to continue studying dance.
Ages 4 through 7. Especially for boys, girls are also welcome. Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop will be taught in this once a week hour long class.
Ages 4 and 5 Ballet is the dance form which provides the foundation for all other dance styles. Ballet steps are correctly introduced
in a fun and disciplined way, sometimes using song and dance association.
Ballet - Ages 6 and older Ballet is the dance form which provides the foundation for all other dance
styles. Classes in Ballet are offered for beginning through advanced levels. Students develop a strong
sense of self-discipline in order to advance in all dance forms. After at least 2 years of ballet and
at age 10 or older, students may add Pointe class with teacher recommendation.
Tap - Ages 4 and older Tap is a very old and once again popular form of dance in which the shoes have
metal taps on them to make rhythmic sounds in many different styles. Tap is offered both as part of our
combo classes as well as a separate course. Classes are taught at all levels and include rhythm and
co-ordination skills to upbeat and popular music.
Jazz - Ages 5 and older Jazz has its own strong technique using the muscles in the body similar to the
way they are used in Ballet. Students will learn this technique and will develop proper ways of
emotionally expressing themselves through dance. Funk, Theatrical, Lyrical, Liturgical and African
styles of dance can all be found in Jazz classes. Jazz students are very strongly encouraged to study
ballet as well.
Hip-Hop - Ages 7 and older Hip-Hop is set to today's hottest music. Classes emphasize co-ordination,
creativity and rhythm in an atmosphere of "moving to the beat".
Movements are done specifically to song lyrics
Registration and Tuition Fees
A registration fee of $25 per student is required at the time of registration. This fee is paid annually
and is non-refundable.
All tuition for dance classes is based on an annual rate over 9 months. There are no refunds for missed
classes or holidays. Missed classes may be made up with your instructor's permission. For your convenience,
annual charges may be paid in full with a 5% discount or over a 9 month period in 9 equal monthly payments.
Monthly payments are due the first lesson of each month, and no later than the 15th. A late fee of $10.00 will
be charged for tuition paid after the 15th, even if the 15th is on a weekend, so please budget for this, and
pay tuition before the deadline. I will no longer accept any postdated checks.
There will be a $25 charge on all returned checks. If you write one check
that is returned unpaid, I will not accept any more checks from you. If your account is 2 months behind, your
child cannot attend class until payment is made, but the balance must be paid in full. Please make sure your
child's name is on all checks.
