PRESCHOOL/KINDER - BALLET & HIP HOPSCOTCH Our engaging program helps your petite dancer learn age appropriate dance steps and proper terminology in a creative, lively and fun setting. This combo class was created for for those high energy little ones that are always ready to show off their dance moves and love to hop around (along with those sound-sensitive students who aren't fond of taps). Your dancer will be introduced to ballet basics that will provide an excellent dance foundation as they grow, and combines the basics of hip hop (only age appropriate movement and music - we promise!) with basic acrobatic and tumbling skills. We highly recommend this class for all young dancers!
WHAT TO WEAR? At Reach, it is very important to be dressed appropriately for each dance class you take! Just like you wouldn't wear a tutu to soccer practice, we would prefer you save your soccer uniform for the field! Likewise, the same thing you wear to jazz class may not be appropriate for ballet class. Dressing appropriately gives dancers confidence! It helps teachers better see body lines so they can help you become the best dancer you can be.
REACH DRESS CODE + SHOE REQUIREMENTS FOR PRESCHOOL/KINDER CLASS? Any color or style dance wear (leotard, tights, skirt, dress, tights); Boys may wear comfortable black basketball shorts, white t-shirt. Ballet Slippers. Hair pulled back away from their face.
REACHFOR THE BARRES is a studio specializing in the development and needs of today’s young dancer with non-competitive nurturing dance classes gently encouraging your child’s self esteem with age appropriate expectations and the joy of dance. We are focused on putting the FUN in Fundamentals and the Foundations of dancing!
Our program is based upon multiple-class lessons which we believe offers the best opportunity for children to learn, improve upon and combine new skills and routines, develop their dancing abilities and improve their mind, body and soul. We focus on teaching the whole child with developmentally appropriate programs, as well as age appropriate dancing, music, and attire. Our children grow up so fast, and we want to remove the pressure and competition, and give them more moments, to create, explore, and dancing like no one is watching.
Our mission is to offer an alternative to traditional dance studios, one that looks at teaching from an innovative and conceptual approach with dance education, keeping it simple and stress free, and allowing kids to just be kids, opening a door for dancers to fall in love not just with the performance but with the dance itself.
Our main season runs like a 9-month, academic calendar, which simply means students enrolled in September are guaranteed their spot in class for our entire season as long as your account remains in good standing.
