We use a combination of BALLET and TAP in our classes (30 minutes of each per class)
This develops different body/brain connections for better coordination.
The two dance forms compliment each other as well as keeping your child engaged.
We use Al Gilberts graded ballet and tap numbers as our curriculum to teach the dance techniques.
The numbers get progressively harder as the dancers age and ability increases just like grade levels in school.
Your child will learn 2 or 3 dance numbers that are approximately 3 minutes each.
We complete each semester with a dance performance so your child can display what they have learned
After all PERFORMING IS WHAT DANCE IS ALL ABOUT and they love to perform.
We provide BEAUTIFULL COSTUMES, a different one for each dance, at NO COST.
NO TICKETS TO BUY OR SELL. Our May and December shows are CANNED FOOD DRIVES.
Our August show is at the STATE FAIR, the first Saturday of the fair.
All students are invited to march in the IRIS FESTIVAL PARADE and DALLAS SUMMER FEST PARADE.
The LYRICAL, JAZZ, HIP-HOP, and FUNK classes use numbers that Linda choreographs
to TASTFULL modern popular songs. These also get progressively harder as age and skill
levels increase.TO GET STARTED
please call Carole for Keizer/Salem classes or Linda for Rickreall/Dallas classes
for class schedules.YOU DO NOT PREREGISTER
Bring your child to the class to allow them to try it out and make sure they
want to do it. You register at the end of the class.
