About This Activity

Description

This class, designed for students ages 7-9, combines ballet, jazz and improvisation. Each week students will learn basic ballet and jazz technique with the new steps becoming part of two dances - one ballet and one jazz. The improvisation part of class will be spend developing creativity in making up dances both solo and in a group. Students will learn choreography skills and how to dance with others in both structured and unstructured dances.

Students will perform their ballet and jazz dances in a recital and will also demonstrate group improv skills in the form of a semi-structured free-dance. Simple costumes/outfits will be discussed and decided on at least one month prior to the recital.

Enrolled students should wear comfortable clothing that makes movement easy. Leotards are not required; dance shoes are recommended.


The Academy encourages new students to drop in on dance classes to see if it is a good fit. Call our office at 816-235-2741 to ask about availability.

Please note: there is no class on Saturday, April 4, 2015
