Ballet/Tap for 5 and 6 year olds

Ballet/Tap for 5-6 year olds

Class Description:  Students in this class will build upon skills learned in Ballet/Tap for 3-4 year olds.  For Tap, students will take the basic percussive steps learned the previous year and learn to combine them into various rhythmic combinations.

For Ballet, students will take the individual movements learned in the prior year and apply them to across the floor exercises.  Students will now be introduced to basic barre exercises and center practice.


For Parents of Children in this Class:  Your child may need your attention from time to time for various reasons including bathroom or behavioral issues.  We ask that you do not leave the waiting room when your child is in class- unless first informing the office and making arrangements to have another parent responsible during your absence.  We make every effort to have all children feel safe and cared for in a loving and inspiring learning environment.

Dress Code Requirements:  For Tap; Black Tap Shoes.  Since Tap is first, please have your child dressed in her or his Tap Shoes for the start of class.  For Ballet; students must wear a leotard (any style) with tights.  Pink Ballet slippers must be worn on the feet.  Hair does not have to be in a bun, it need only be worn so that it is out of the face.


In order to prevent property loss, we strongly suggest that Parents with children in this class attach their child's name to tap shoes and any other footwear/apparel that they bring for this class.
