Grades K-2nd

ALL STARS offers K-2nd graders Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Belly Dancing.

Ballet You may have heard that Ballet is the base of everything.  This is true. We do not require our students to take Ballet but we highly encourage it to develop stronger technique, and thus a better dancer all around.
Ballet is offered on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 4:30-5:25pm.

Tap is a fun percussion dance.  Think Fred Astaire, Gene Kelley, Gregory Hines and his protege, Savion Glover (Happy Feet :-).
Tap is offered on Monday, 5:30-6:25pm.

Jazz is a fun style that incorporate Ballet technique to pop and classic Jazz music. Think Broadway, MTV 80's music videos, most fast paced musical numbers in TV and Movies. Listen to Star 94 and that's probably the style of music we'll be dancing to.
Jazz is offered on Wednesday, 4:30-5:25pm.

Hip Hop is an urban style of dance generally danced to Hip Hop music. Extremely popular and fun, this style is not technical, but instead is devised of "grooves" and organic street moves that combine into energetic and vibrant dances. Genuine Hip Hop would allow for much improvisation and dance battles for greatest expression. Hip Hop class will allow dancers to learn the moves, learn choreographies, and hopefully help develop their own flavor in the style.
Hip Hop is offered on Tuesday, 5:30-6:25pm.

Belly Dancing (girls only) is a 3rd-5th grade class that welcomes K-2nd graders. Belly Dancing is a fantastic style to learn how to isolate muscles and develop great coordination. Think Shakira. It's movement is natural to a woman's body.  The LM class (3rd-5th grade) is designed to be age appropriate in movement and choreography. This class meets Tuesday, 6:30-7:25pm.
