Like our Pre-K dance class, K-Dance is a combination class, with 30 minutes of tap training and 30 minutes of ballet training, and an overall basic introduction to jazz. If your child enjoyed our Pre-K class, or is interested in learning more about tap and ballet techniques, they will surely love our K-Dance class.
In this class, the dancers will continue to explore the styles of tap, jazz and ballet – working on terminology, basic ballet positions and expanding their knowledge in tap technique. We incorporate upbeat music to introduce our young dancers to the jazz style of dance, allowing for your child to creatively test their skills in a more structured and supported setting.
In the tap section, our young dancers will learn more about musical accents as they practice types of ball-beats, or dropping the ball of the foot to the floor, as well as how to quickly change the weight on the balls of the feet from one foot to the other, as in ball-changes.
This class will perform in our annual recital, so your child will get to show off their developed skills on stage.
