At this time, there are virtual and some in person classes available. Virtual classes currently live-streamed in Central Time Zone through Zoom. The Children's Program offers formal, quality training year-round to students ranging from ages 3-16. The Children's Program requires a placement class, and a year long commitment. Students will then be assigned a level and schedule. DANZA follows a graded syllabus under the renowned ABT curriculum. Advancement to each continuous level is decided by teacher and school director with evaluation in class throughout the year. Auditions not required for summer camps.
Here at DANZA, classical ballet--the foundation of all dances, is our focal point. Prepare to be impressed as your child flourishes into a true dancer before your very eyes. Through formal training, students will learn classroom structure, etiquette, combine correct technique with artistry, proper & safe progressions of movement while concurrently attaining self-confidence, discipline, & the connection between outer & inner strength.
Ballet turns hard-work into talent, challenges into rewards, peers into life-long friends, and dreams into reality. Come dance with us today!
The joy of dance begins with a child's first steps in a fun and nurturing environment.
Ballet is introduced to our youngest of dancers by using props, video clips, books, and music, in which the students explore movement and storytelling. Students learn to connect imagery with movement and begin to develop coordination and listening skills that'll stress the joys of movement, music, & imagination!
MINI & ME
Mini & Me is a music and movement class designed especially for the littlest ones at DANZA. Encourage an appreciation for music, body awareness, and the development of early language skills all while bonding with your baby through dancing, singing, and playing together. This class is for babies and their caregivers. Come join us!
Our program is designed and facilitated by Melanie Hebert, our school pianist, and mother of four, in collaboration with Tamara Miller, SLP.
Remember to wear socks and comfortable clothes you can move in, and a yoga mat and/or blanket for you and your baby to sit on and your diaper bag.
Ages 4-18 months (sitters to early walkers)
Pointe shoes---the magical moment when students experience another part of the dance world, an extension of their ballet training, adding to the aesthetic of their dancing. Learn how to shop for, sew, care, and break-in shoes.
Not only do the feet and ankles need to be strong enough, but alignment, turnout, back and abdominal muscles must also be in order to stand on pointe correctly without the risk of injury. Students will be individually evaluated with qualification upon approval of school director only.
Contemporary class will introduce students to movement based on Limon and release technique. They will learn fall and recovery concepts, how to play with gravity in order to move efficiently through space, and discover pathways in their bodies to enter and leave floorwork with ease. Through these movement philosophies, students will be able to approach any dance technique and movement practice in a dynamic, mindful, and expressive way.
This class will challenge students and enhance their ballet technique by helping them develop into well rounded dancers.
