Teachers encourage dancers of all ages and levels to be inspired and develop their passion as they reach for their personal best. The experience of training in dance improves posture, rhythm, coordination, strength and flexibility as well as enhancing life skills such as confidence, discipline and teamwork. These classes are generally once a week with the option to perform in our year end recital.
These students must take a ballet class and technique class. There is a committment for local performances and year end recital and possibly 2 competitions. This level is to prepare for Competitive Level with a minimum of 4 hours of training per week. Must audition or be invited in to this level.
At Let's Dance we strive for excellence. We believe that ordinary children can achieve the extraordinary if they are encouraged, supported and provided with the right training. If your child enjoys dance and is prepared to work hard in a fun but firm atmosphere then our competitive program has a lot to offer. Competitive dancers must dance a minimum of 6 hrs per week. A Ballet class is a must as well as 2 technique classes. Our team travels to at least 2 out of town competitions per year. Dancers must first audition to become part of our competitive team.
