Tutus and Jazz Shoes is a wonderful Introduction to both Ballet and Jazz Dance for young learners. Class will consist of 20 minutes of Ballet and 15 minutes of Jazz. Class will begin with a brief warm up and stretch working up to splits and straddles.
Ballet technique will include the five Ballet positions, plies, relieves, tendu, arabesque, coupe, passé and achappe. Basic motor skills such as hopping, skipping and gallops will be addressed. All danced to our favorite Princess music!
Jazz Dance technique will include side touch, Jazz squares, 3-step turns and pivot turns. All danced to age appropriate music such as “Kidz Bop”.
Learners will be allowed to interact with the instructor. I teach strong technique in a fun positive environment. I want my dancers to finish class not only with knowledge of dance, but a love of dance and with a smile!
