Combo Classes 4

Try both Ballet & Tap or Jazz

With DDC combo classes!

Ballet/Tap Combo-Levels IA & IB (ages 4-5 and 5-6)

The elements of creative movement will be augmented by more coordination and sequence-related exercises; floor formations that teach children to remember their "place" in the room; movement exercises that emphasize straight legs and pointed feet, posture, placement, stretches and comportment of classical ballet.

Basic ballet concepts such as 1st and 2nd positions, plié and relevé will be introduced. Fun, creative elements such as sing-a-long songs, games and other imaginative activities will keep the pace of the class lively and engaging. Basics of tap dancing will also be introduced, encouraging coordination building, rhythm, and listening skills.  These dancers will perform both a Ballet and a Tap piece in DDC’s annual Recital Showcase.  They are also invited to audition in September for DDC’s annual holiday production, “A Gift for Emma.”

Ballet/Tap Combo-Level IIA (ages 6-7)

Ballet Level II is the first time dancers use the ballet barre.  Facing the barre, young dancers are taught the “ballet check-list” in order to introduce correct placement, stretched knees, and a formality to the art form.  Dancers start to memorize the combinations instead of imitating the teacher, and perform with more independence.  Tap tempos increase, and combinations start to become a bit more complicated. These dancers will perform both a Ballet and a Tap piece in DDC’s annual Recital Showcase.  They are also invited to audition in September for DDC’s annual holiday production, “A Gift for Emma.”

 

Ballet/Jazz Combo-Level IIA, IIB, IIIA (ages 6-7 and 7-8 and 8-10)

Ballet Level II is the first time dancers use the ballet barre.  Facing the barre, young dancers are taught the “ballet check-list” in order to introduce correct placement, stretched knees, and a formality to the art form.  Dancers start to memorize the combinations instead of imitating the teacher, and perform with more independence. The Jazz level I is the very beginning level of Jazz at DDC.  Young dancers are taught that jazz technique is based on ballet.  Basic isolations of the upper body, as well as the turned in style of jazz are taught, along with the grounded and linear style of jazz.  Young dancers will enjoy dancing to age appropriate music, learning the fast/sharp/explosive movement that differentiates jazz from ballet.  These dancers will perform both a Ballet and a Jazz piece in DDC’s annual Recital Showcase.  They are also invited to audition in September for DDC’s annual holiday production, “A Gift for Emma.”
