Tippi Toes Dance Company® begins with warm-ups and stretching exercises as well as activities that encourage boys and girls to use their imagination. We then introduce ballet, tap, jazz or hip hop techniques using dance terms and examples to enhance their knowledge of the art. We incorporate our original dance music to further their dance experience. During each class we instruct the children on dances which will be performed at various times throughout the year. We offer different types of classes depending on the age of the dancer.
What’s the cost?
Most of our classes have a $35 registration fee (once per year) and class tuition is $55/ month. All registration and payments are done online. For families with more than one dancer, the first registration fee is $35 and any additional registrations fees will only be $15. For those families, tuition is reduced to $50/ month. Classes through Shelby County Schools are $65/ month with a $20 registration fee.
Types of Classes
Ballet, Tap & Jazz dance classes
Ballet, Tap & Jazz dance classes are typically offered for children 2 and up. We incorporate an even mix of the three types of dance over the 45 minute class time using high-energy music.
Hip Hop/Jazz dance classes
Hip Hop/Jazz dance classes created especially for children 6-12 years of age. Using popular and current music the students start learning dances and choreography quickly as well as learning various dance elements. Our version of hip hop/jazz dance is extremely tasteful and clean and our priority is offering age-appropriate material.
Tippi Toes Dance Company® encourages each dancer to wear one of our Tippi Toes t-shirts along with non-restrictive shorts, tights or leggings. Ballet slippers are preferred. However, they will need them for recital. Please write your child’s name in the inside of all shoes. Somebody will be there to help your little dancer slip out of their school shoes and into their dance shoes. No tap shoes are needed. We stick to the soft-soled shoes since each location is graciously allowing us to use their facilities — we don’t want to scuff their floors.
