TOT DANCE

Classes for Ages 2 to 3
Our Tot program is designed for the incredibly imaginative minds of our youngest dancers ages 2 to 3 years old. It is truly a unique and fun-filled learning experience where smiling, sharing, and making friends are the main rules. It is filled with twirling, skipping and jumping. Where imagination rules, creativity runs amuck, and lots of learning is disguised with cuteness and fun.
Tot classes are 30-minutes each and are offered in three 10-week sessions (Movin’ and Groovin’, Bitty Ballet, Tumbling Tots) that run from September to June.

Session I: September – November: Movin’ and Groovin’
We’ll move and groove to the best of Elmo, Disney and other kid-friendly tunes while learning to hop, skip, jump and gallop with our imaginary friends.

Session II: January – March: Bitty Ballet
We’ll learn our first ballet positions by holding imaginary balloons and catching butterflies with lots of help from wands, tutus and magic bean(bag)s!

Session III: March – May: Tumbling Tots
Being upside down is the best! We’ll go topsy turvy and round and round learning somersaults and balancing skills that rival Olympic champs!

 primary DANCE

Classes for Ages 5 to 7
Our Academy Primary dancers are just starting to move beyond the introductory stuff and are ready for the real dancing to begin! We recommend all our Primary dancers take the ballet/jazz or the ballet/tap combo class in their first year of The Academy Program to provide a foundation for their dance training. Then they can add on a hip hop class for a little more funk!

In their second and third year of the Academy, our Primary dancers start to concentrate on those styles that appeal to them most and can choose between Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Musical Theater (or they can take multiple styles to round out their dance training and prepare them for our competitive dance program). The classes are a bit longer and the emphasis is on learning more technique and musicality while having fun and performing.

These dancers get to perform in a recital at year-end  and at a special dance clinic just for them.

The year-end recital includes all the usual fanfare (costumes, photos, dress rehearsal and an on-stage performance in a professional auditorium).

For those dancers who are curious about what it takes to join our competitive dance program, we offer a complementary Academy Competition Dance Clinic. In this special seminar dancers meet NXTL competition team members, they learn about the challenges and rewards of being on a competition team and then end the day performing a special routine for their parents and guests. It's guaranteed to make every dancer feel like a star!

Primary Year One is for dancers in the first year of our primary program.
Primary Year Two is for dancers who have already completed one year in our Primary Program.
PRIMARY YEAR ONE:
Ballet/Jazz 1 (5-7)
Ballet/Tap 1 (5-7)

SECONDARY DANCE

Classes for Ages 8 to 10
Dancers in our Secondary Progam of The Academy can take classes in a dance style they already know and love or branch out and try something new (or do both)! We encourage our Secondary dancers to take classes in multiple styles and we make it easy by "stacking" classes one after another so you can get a lot in on one night! Secondary dancers can choose from classes in all our dance genres.

These dancers get to perform in a recital at year-end  and at a special dance clinic just for them.

The year-end recital includes all the usual fanfare (costumes, photos, dress rehearsal and an on-stage performance in a professional auditorium).

For those dancers who are curious about what it takes to join one of our competitive dance programs, we offer a complementary Academy Competition Dance Clinic.
