EMERGENCE PROGRAM:

Elementary school children study dance styles in greater depth.  90 minutes of class is divided into 3 disciplines:  ballet/lyrical, jazz/modern, and tap.  Dancers learn warmup, cross-the-floor, and combinations in each style area.  The focus is on fun, group dynamics, and individual growth as we prepare choreography for both informal presentations and Recital.  At Spirals we place a special focus on empowering children to create and respect the art of dance and artistry of each other.  We make a practice of sharing during class, and taking creative challenges through choreography games.  All students learn to give and take constructive feedback and to be a great partner or group member.   Ballet is taught in conjunction with the more expressive and upbeat style of lyrical jazz so as to promote love of dance.  1.5 - 1 3/4 hrs.
