GYM STARZ! GYMNASTICS CLASSES

3- 5 Year Olds: Our preschool gymnastics classes are designed with the needs of the preschooler in mind. Participation in a preschool gymnastics class is an opportunity for children to begin experiencing gymnastics. Your child will begin to learn and master skills at this level. They will be introduced to all 4 Olympic events (Beam, Bars, Floor and Vault).  Students will have the opportunity to learn a gymnastics routine on the mats and compete.

5-7 Year Olds: Once your child reaches kindergarten they are eligible to enroll in this gymnastics level. Skills taught include cartwheels, handstands and rolls as well as basics on bars, beam, and vault. As a student in this program, your child will benefit from increased physical activity and improve in areas such as strength, flexibility and coordination. Our skill development curriculum is progressive and the skills will be worked on all 4 Olympic Gymnastic events (Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam & Floor Exercise) as well as Trampoline. Students will have the opportunity to learn a gymnastics routine on the mats and compete.

HIP HOP COMBOS
This class combines the fun of HIP HOP with the skills of Acrobats! Students will “HOP” right into the basics of Hip Hop while learning cute cheers and jumps or fun acro skills. One half of the class time is spent on  Acro the other half is spent on Hip Hop! Class requirements: leotard/unitard, shorts and sneakers

BALLET CLASSES...PLEASE INQUIRE.
Ballet Technique classes (for students age 7 and up) are the foundation for training at the Academy and focus on developing a solid ballet technique with emphasis on understanding correct body placement, proper use of turn out, coordination of the upper body (epaulement), and use of arms (port de bras). Clear explanations of exercises and theory help students use the ballet vocabulary in a simple, practical way that leads to increased technical understanding, healthy physical development, and lifelong enjoyment. Students 11 and older with strong ballet technique, sufficient core and ankle strength, and a teacher's recommendation go on to study 'en pointe'.

 

TAP CLASSES... !!
Tap Dance is a timeless art that combines dance and percussion. Tap dancers in musicals, movies, television, commercials, and concerts inspire us with their infectious rhythms. Tap Dance classes (for students age 7 and up) explore the two traditions of rhythm tap (hoofing) and Broadway tap. Class begins with warm up exercises in the center that increase control, coordination, and rhythm, followed by across the floor exercises that teach dynamics, shading, phrasing, and musicality, concluding with extended rhythmic phrases and improvisation exercises. The goal is to develop tap dancers that are equally strong musicians, dancers, and performers.
