Students are always welcome to makeup a missed class with other classes offered by 8*Count Dance. Disinfecting of the rooms will be done between classes, please allow our teachers time to do so. Hand sanitizer is the classroom for students. Parents are to wait in the lobby area. If you do leave the build, double check the contact information on the roster for your student.
Please register one week before class starts to ensure the class will not be cancelled.
Class Description: An age specific 55-minute class containing acro, ballet, tap and jazz/creative movement. Classes will work on a rotation of Dance & Acro offered in the 55-minute class. The purpose of the class is to introduce young dancers to the four styles of dance and inspire movement and creativity within a positive environment. Dancers will also learn basic steps and terminology in all four styles, determined by their age and experience. For example, all dancers will learn what a “plie” is and how to demonstrate one. The use of fun, age appropriate music engages the young dancers’ minds and bodies. The use of props such as hula hoops for the “freeze dance” makes the end of class the most fun! Tap & Ballet Shoes recommended.
