Dancing for Beginners
Choosing the right dance class for you...
Ballet is the foundation of a dancer's training but it doesn't have to be the place to start- although it is recommended. A new dancer that loves rhythm and wearing noisy tap shoes might need to start with tap and as their appreciation for dance grows, they can add ballet and other genres to their training.
A young male interested in dance might be hesitant to choose a genre, although we have MANY boys training at the dance studio, and might choose to start in hip hop. After being inspired by seeing other boys training they might choose to add on other genres to support their hip hop training and branch out to try new dance classes and styles.
Our website allows you to read about each genre and watch videos of each of them. We recommend the parents and dancer watch these together to determine what looks the most fun for the dancer. The office can then help to set you up with trial classes in each of the genres that you want to try... then it's all about your child (and yourself) making the decision on which class to register for.
More genres include jazz, lyrical/contemporary, drama, musical theater and tumbling. For a detailed description of each genre, click HERE
