AGES 6 - 12
Show Stars™ Ballet
The Show Stars™ Ballet program fosters musicality, body awareness, and movement potential in a format that encourages individual artistry. Inspired by the work of Rudolf Von Laban and Irmgard Bartinieff, the class explores the elements of dance; Body, Space, Force, and Time, through creative exercises that are movement focused rather than story focused. The knowledge gained in these classes prepares the student for the attention to detail required in the study of formal ballet training.
Ballet classes range from 45 minutes to 1hr 15 min classes depending on the age of the students.
Show Stars™ Jazz
Show Stars™ Jazz combines many styles and techniques from ethnic and contemporary dance, to ballet. Rhythm, upon which all dance forms depend, is particularly integral to jazz dance. The first half of the class consists of exercises which stretch and tone muscles and develop support for proper stress-free alignment of the skeletal structure. Using jazz, soul, R&B, ethnic and pop music, jazz classes are a great workout and a fun way to release tension while attaining a body awareness.
Stars™ Jazz is part of our value class 4 in 1 curriculum.
