Each year DancEd offers special camps and summer classes that are geared toward working the body and excercising while focusing on FUN. These classes may include Princess Ballet, Diva Dance, Sisters, and others.
Teen level classes are for older students with little dance training in that genre. Teen Jazz 1-2 is for older students at a Jazz 3-4 level class. Teen Jazz 3-4 is for Jazz 6 and higher students who are not able to take Ballet.
Students will learn basic ballet steps and locomotor skills through games, stories, and imaginary events. Class allows 2 1/2 to 3 year old students to interact with other children and be creative with music and props. PLEASE NOTE: Children should be 2 1/2 years old by the start of the first class and be able to function without a parent in the dance room.
Students will learn upbeat and stylized dance moves. Jazz dance is fast-paced and requires high energy. Students will stretch and work on dance technique, as well as learn choreographed routines that move across the floor. Like tap, modern jazz dance is considered to have it's origins in America (with special credit given to Chicagoan Gus Giordano!).
This class will teach students the latest and greatest dances that are being done at Bat Mitzvahs, Bar Mitzvahs, school dances, etc. Party Dance class will be tons of fun and really get everyone moving!!!
This class combines many different styles of dance to produce a new modern version of ballet. Flexibility, muscular strength and endurance will be enhanced through dance exercises and routines. Students need dance attire and bare feet.
