This class will focus on teaching ballet at the barre and center practice, floor work, turns, jumps and positions 1st thru 3rd. The tap portion will introduce many of the basic tap steps and a solid knowledge of rhythms. Even while learning these techniques, students will have lots of fun with our lighthearted teaching style and personal attention and encouragement. We want our dancers to love what they do and grow as they learn. Please dress in dance clothes with ballet and tap shoes. Girls should have hair off face.

For ages 7 and Up or by invite only. Tap dance is a blast and offers so many great benefits to kids. In this class, students will progress to more complicated steps and continue to work on their rhythm and syncopation. We will be linking steps together to create fun routines that we will perform for families at the end of the session. This class will be a progressive class and students will want to come each week so they can add new steps to what they have already mastered. This is a small class for the focused dancer who wants to improve their tapping ability.

Children sing, dance and learn to act through games and simple scripts, while learning beginning rhythm, music and movement skills. There will be a performance at the end of the session that may involve costume and prop fees. Children will love all the games and play, as they become more confident and make new friends.

Closer to showtime in December, there may be a couple of extra rehearsals and private coaching is also offered at no extra charge. Our La Canada Theater Kids are very talented and as they perform more with us, have blossomed into all around great performers.
