Tumblebees offers dance classes for girls and boys in a creative and positive environment.
Our Pre-Ballet/ Pre-Tap class is geared toward 3 and 4 year olds. The children learn the basic five ballet positions, beginner tap steps and other beginning techniques. Focus is on improving coordination, movement and self esteem. The class helps with basic motor skills and foot articulations as well as body position and posture.
Our Ballet/Tap/Jazz class provides traditional ballet, contemporary jazz and basic tap concepts. The dancers can expect to be challenged with terminology, basic and advanced movements, performances in-house and out, and creative use of ideas from students and instructors. This class offers a great use of energy levels and provides fun, fitness and education in the field of dance.
Our Dancenastics class combines a half hour of jazz dance with a half hour of gymnastics. Your child will learn and master basic fundamentals in the art of jazz dance. They also get the benefit of basic gymnastics like trampoline, beam, vault and bars.
Students enrolled in all dance programs including Dancenastics and Preschool Dancenastics have the opportunity to participate in the annual, year-end Spring Recital.
