Class Descriptions:

Baby Ballerinas/Tutu Toddlers/Twinkle Toes/Princess Ballet/Fairytale Ballet: These pre-ballet classes are intended to introduce the world of dance to the very young, beginning dancer.  Ballet positions and exercises are taught, along with beginner dance terminology.  Dancers will begin to develop basic motor skills through dance combinations. Props will be used to keep students interested in and excited for dance.  This program encourages children to have fun with movement, rhythm, and creativity, while developing coordination, balance, flexibility, musicality and other basic dance steps and skills.  Ballet:  Ballet is the basic foundation of all dance forms.  Lake Dance Steps places strong emphasis on classical ballet training.  While ballet is not required, it is strongly recommended to build the proper alignment, posture and placement that advanced dance technique requires. The class format emphasizes correct development of both the technical and artistic elements of classical ballet and is a clear reflection of pure traditional training.

Pre-pointe/Pointe:  For students with previous ballet experience.  Pre-pointe/Pointe must be taken in addition to Ballet 4 or 5.  The class will concentrate on the development of specific muscle groups needed for pointe work.

Jazz/Hip Hop Class: Jazz dance is energetic and upbeat, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns.  Hip-Hop is the latest in popular street and video moves put into combinations that are fun and exciting! Students work on placement and technique while learning modern, funky, and contemporary jazz styles. The class consists of a warm-up, floor progressions, and combinations. *Age appropriate choreography. 

Starlettes: Introduces basic jazz dance steps with focus on movement, rhythm, coordination, flexibility, and fun dance combos. Students will also learn beginning tumbling skills.


Tap: Tap dance uses the sound of the tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. Tap dance sharpens reflexes and improves memory skills and coordination. Beginning classes will work toward establishing fundamental tap movements, vocabulary and will work on basic rhythms and steps that progress into fun and lively dance combinations. As dancers advance they will involve more intricate rhythms and combinations. Tap dancing is a great way to develop musicality, timing and balance.

Competition Dance: We are a 1st place winning national competition team!  Dancers perform at recital and also compete at competition.  Competition students must audition or be invited by the instructor. Competition dancers may participate in Jazz, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Lyrical or choose one style.  All competition dancers must also enroll in Ballet.
