PROGRAM LENGTH: 2-4 years, dependent of student mastery of concepts and skills

Our Senior level classes are designed to provide continued technical training and performance development for high school students. This program build on technique and skills acquired inIntermediate classes, mastering previously introduced skills while being challenged with new skills.

Studio North Dance Arts provides students with the highest quality dance training, allowing young dancers to build confidence, gain strength and reach their fullest potential. Intermediate programs provide open opportunities to dance for boys and girls ages 12 and up. This program allows dancers to attend one day a week and explore the fundamental teachings of ballet, tap jazz, modern, acrodance and hip-hop.

Students are placed in classes based on age and previous dance experience. Our faculty continually evaluated by to insure proper placement. The length of class increases as the dancer progresses in age, interest, vocabulary and ability. In an environment that builds self-esteem and confidence, parents are assured their child will develop necessary life tools that extend far beyond the classroom.

A Ballet class is STRONGLY recommended in conjunction with Senior Modern to reinforce proper technique, build strength and develop performance skills. A Tap and/or Hip-Hop class aids with rhythm and musicality, while Jazz and/or AcroDance build strength, coordination and overall body awareness while diversifying skills. (Level placement in additional disciplines is determined by previous experience in that style.)

CLASS REQUIREMENTS
Students must be in 9th grade or above (age 14 & up) for the given school year; experienced 13 year olds may be placed in this level by teacher recommendation.

In order to safely build skills, maintain strength and move forward with classmates, student must maintain an 75% attendance record for the school year. Make-up classes should be taken within one month of absences to reinforce skills being learned.

TAP & TWIRL (formerly Creative Movement)
Our signature pre-school program introducing our youngest students to the dance classroom through a combination of ballet, tap and creative movement skills. We develop basic motor skills such as skipping, galloping and jumping, while students become familiar with beginner ballet concepts and movements such as plié, tendu and piqué, Tap is used to aid in the development of musicality. While students dance, play and sing, we also teach them HOW to be in a dance class - listening, when to talk, following direction, sharing, waiting their turn and working together. This 45-minute class meets once a week and performs one dance in our annual May recital.

Prerequisites: age 3 by October 31st, potty-trained and able to take class independently.
