For the first 30 minutes of class, ballet positions, as well as basic ballet vocabulary are taught along with floor exercises, simple steps and correct posture. A greater emphasis on musicality and rhythm is encouraged. The last 15 minutes will be spent on tumbling skills such as somersaults, cartwheels and strengthening.
*It is recommended students wear blue leotard with ballet skirt, pink footed tights and pink leather ballet slippers with no drawstringHair should be pulled back neatly in a bun or ponytail. It is recommended gentlemen wear a white t-shirt and black bottoms (pants or shorts) and black leather ballet slippers.
Starlet Ballet/Tumble class runs September through May. The season ends with a beautiful recital which gives dancers a chance to shine in front of family and friends! The recital experience helps children build self esteem and contributes to a sense of confidence. The rehearsal process of learning a dance helps children develop retentions skills and the ability to work as a team. Starlet Ballet/Tumble students perform twice in recital (1 ballet dance and a separate tumble performance to show off their skills) + finale in recital. They will begin learning routines around the end of January. We have tried to make our recital as family friendly and enjoyable as possible. The recital is not mandatory to participate in this class.
