Rising Stars is a great choice for a 7 year old who is new to dance. This one hour and 15 minute class gives them a taste of both ballet and jazz. In ballet we’ll start with the basics: plies, tendus and rond de jambes. Dancers learn the french terminology with each new step. We’ll focus on keeping correct alignment and posture while we dance. In Jazz we focus on dancing to the beat of the music. We work on our flexibility so that we’ll be able to do the splits and move on to kicks, leaps and basic turns.
Rising Stars dancers perform in our two annual recitals. They’ll do a ballet dance in one show, and a jazz dance in the other. Our Rising Stars get so excited backstage and love performing with their friends.

Seven Year Old Dance Classes
We also offer Hip Hop for 7 year old dancers. Hip Hop is a great choice for dancers who enjoy putting a little more of their own style into their dancing. It's also our most popular choice for boys! Our Hip Hop classes are high energy and will keep your dancer moving and grooving. If your dancer loves to turn on the radio at home and freestyle she/he will love our Hip Hop class.
Hip Hop dancers are also invited to perform in our two annual recitals. We love seeing their style and attitude come out on stage!

Ballet classes teach, grace, poise, confidence and focus. In the traditional manner, each class will start out at the barre working through the building blocks of our art. Then we’ll come to the center of the room and work on adagio (slow, controlled) movement, turns, and jumps. We’ll finish with larger movements that travel across the room. Ballet classes are vital for any dancer who wants to progress towards getting pointe shoes.
These classes are recommended for 7 year olds with previous dance experience. For beginner 7 year olds, we recommend starting their ballet training with the Rising Stars classes above. Ballet dancers perform in our two annual recitals. Nothing is more magical than taking the stage in a tutu and performing for a full audience.
Jazz is an exciting and upbeat form of dance! Dancers learn kicks, turns and work on improving their strength and flexibility. Styles of Jazz range from the dance you see on a Broadway stage, to the dance in a basketball half time show. Jazz is a great choice for dancers who might want to dance on a high school dance or drill team.

Jazz dancers perform in our two annual recitals. They bring energy and excitement to the stage and have a blast doing it.
We also offer Tumbling classes for dancers ages 7 year old dancers. We generally recommend tumbling as an add-on class, but it can be taken alone. Tumblers start with a warm up to get their blood pumping and muscles ready to go. They will then spend some time on strength and flexibility exercises. After that, we get to start working on tricks! Tumblers get to progress at their own speed, so once your dancer has mastered one skill, they can start on the next without waiting for the rest of the class.
Tumbling classes do not perform in our recitals. For this reason we recommend taking a different, dance based class in addition to your tumbling class.
