One of Touch of Class Dance Academy's major goals is to create strong bodies as well as strong minds. Dancing teaches physical coordination, increases socialization skills, and provides healthy competition. Constructive and positive guidance, combined with exercise, gives children a strong foundation for confidence in themselves. We believe dancing also provides the perfect environment for stressing the importance of team work, while encouraging individual achievement. Dance is an art, and like any art, there are rules and techniques. If learned properly there is no limit to what a young dancer can achieve. For these reasons, we are pleased to offer you a variety of beginning through advanced level classes in Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern, Tap, and Tumbling. We are have Combination classes for children 3-6 and Creative Movement for children 2 1/2 - 3 years of age.
Be polite and courteous to your instructors and classmates at all times. Physical and verbal abuse of others will not be tolerated. Misuse of studio property is not allowed. Please do not play with the stereo equipment. Gum is not allowed in the classroom as it is a choking hazard. Please use the restroom before and after class. If a dancer is disruptive and repeatedly asked to behave, he/she may be asked to leave the classroom and wait in the lobby until the end of class.
All students are expected to maintain the dress code as part of the dance discipline. Attend class in the proper dance attire. Ballet: Dancers must be in black leotard, pink tights (full or ankle), hair pulled back into a bun and ballet shoes. Dance skirts, shorts, capris, or pants may be worn over tights and leotard at the discretion of the instructor for tap, jazz, modern, lyrics, tumble. Street clothes and tennis shoes may be worn for hip hop.
