Dreams Dance Academy - Proudly created with Wix.com

Early Childhood Program:  Ages 5-8

 

Whether this is your child’s first class, or they started in our preschool program – we have something for everyone! From getting to try their first Lyrical class or being able to choose a Level 1 class (example Tap 1 or Ballet 1) rather than a combo class if they’ve found a dance style they really love. Our instructors follow the same structured lesson plans to ensure accuracy and consistency throughout our program. This is such a fun age to watch the dancers really progress and soak in all they learn each week. It’s an exciting time! Combo classes are great for level 1 OR 2 dancers. 

 

To move to a level 2, dancers must receive instructor approval at the end of a session. These come via email. 

Ballet: Focuses on overall body alignment and awareness with emphasis on proper usage of feet and legs and execution of turnout. Barre and center work, along with combinations.  Ballet shoes are required.

Lyrical: Lyrical is a fusion of ballet and jazz technique, that utilizes slow fluid movements to interpret music and express emotion while telling a story through the art of dance. Should have at least one year of ballet or jazz training before starting.

Ballet/Lyrical

Poms: (aka Dance Team or Drill Team in high school). From pom routines to kick-lines, this has been an exciting and fun new addition to DDA! An additional cost of $12 for pink poms (yours to keep).

Shoes - right now the shoe requirement is hip hop sneakers (ones that our hip hop classes wear), but we may be changing it to jazz shoes. Inquire with your instructor before you purchase

Tiny Poms

Different than Adult Yoga this class will teach your child to focus on body awareness and brain and body connection through breath.
