We offer jazz, ballet, tap, hip hop, lyrical, Singing, Drama, Musical Theatre and Acro classes for our 7-9yrs age group. At this age, we begin to expose students to a wider variety of styles beyond the basics. These classes focus on extending their dance skills and knowledge appropriate to their age and level.
We also offer troupe classes for this age group.
What is Troupe? If your dancer loves working hard in their dance classes and performing on stage then troupe is for you!
We are not selective based on your dance abilities to be a part of our troupes, we only ask that dancers who choose to participate in troupe show dedicated commitment to their classes and their teams.
Troupe involves being a part of our competitive teams, where dancers learn routines to perform at competitions or other events like a fundraiser. Troupe students are required to commit to being present in class rehearsals each week and must be available to perform with their teammates on a few weekends throughout the year.
Troupe classes are offered in many styles- Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Musical Theatre.
If you are interested in joining troupe or have any other questions about what is involved, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch with you!
