Pre-Ballet:

This program introduces proper technique through creative and formal curriculum. Students begin to learn correct French terminology, some positions of the feet, and simple steps. There is plenty of enjoyment through interesting, tasteful "song and dance" pieces, and the use of simple stage props.

Students are taught traditional French, Russian and Italian methods of this most important and and valuable dance form.

The many facets of tap dance are presented with essential footwork for clarity of sounds along with varied rhythms, time signatures and proper terminology.
