Beginning Ballet & Tap
This camp is a delightful blend of some of our most popular classes. Students will be introduced to the basic ballet positions and preparatory steps with a focus on musicality, phrasing, terminology and Ballet etiquette as well as a basic warm ups and work across the floor.
The tap portion of the camp will develop the introductory elements of a tap dance vocabulary, musicality, rhythm, timing and phrasing.
These genres work to build grace, poise, strength and flexibility. The curriculum is engulfed in fun, creative movement explorations.
On the last day of camp, parents are invited for the last half hour for a presentation showing what the children have learned.
Attire for girls is a leotard, ballet slippers, tap shoes and bare legs, assuming the weather will be warm. If it is not or if students prefer, tights may be worn. Boys wear shorts or black tights, T-shirt, ballet slippers and tap shoes. Feel free to check our swap box to see if there are any shoes that fit.
