Just for fun!
The Dynamic Dance & Tumbling Academy's recreational program is designed for children ages 2 1/2 to 18 years who enjoy dancing as a recreational activity. These dancers enroll in the dance area(s) that interest them, and are committed to attending each area one day a week for an hour. All classes will perform in at least one night of our annual recital, where friends and family are welcome to come and be entertained by their dancer!
For the little ones ages 2 1/2 - 4 years, we offer combination classes.
The first, a tap/tumbling combo, is once a week for an hour. The kids spend 30 minutes learning tap rudiments and are then moved to the gym, where they finish with 30 minutes of basic tumbling. This class is perfect for the beginner, as we never stop moving!
The second class for little ones is Creative Movement. This 45 minute class combines beginning ballet and jazz while moving creatively to music. This class is recommended for children who are 4 years old, or have already had at least one year of dance classes.
For children ages 5 - 18 years, we offer Tap, Jazz, Ballet & Tumbling.
Tap students are taught tap rudiments and technique, as well as rhythm and timing skills.
Jazz students are taught jazz technique as well as combinations set to up-beat music.
Ballet students learn ballet technique and terminology. Class will normally be set to classical music. Often they will perform a lyrical dance in the recital, which is set to a more popular music selection.
In Tumbling, students will learn skills from forward rolls to back handsprings and aerials (tricks done without hands) depending on each child's individual abilities.
