Elementary Program: Age 7-10

 

These classes are designed to develop class vocabulary and technique infused with musicality and stylized execution of dance combinations. Classes are for beginners as well as those who have had prior dance experience. For students who would like to perform more, this is the age in which dancers are able to perform alongside the WMBA Dance Company in our full-length production of the Nutcracker Ballet. Students typically begin taking more than one class per week to add other dance styles to their training.

Beginning Hip Hop

This is a basic Hip-Hop class. Students will love the fun easy going atmosphere as they build strength and stamina. Dancers will enjoy explore moving with rhythm as they learn the basic steps necessary to build upon in upper levels. Performance quality and execution of combinations will be stressed.
