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.
Types of Classes
This class is a wonderful transition between Toddler & Me and Ballet, Tap & Jazz class. Music, movement, balance and the basic dance steps are introduced in a fun, friendly and positive manner. The dancers do not have mom, dad or another loved one by their side during the class, so this class is great for children who will be able to participate in class on their own. Our teachers will keep the music and curriculum moving along in a way that is fun, positive and appropriate for children 2-4 years of age. This class is 30 minutes based on age and attention span.
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 Fusion dance classes
Hip Hop Fusion dance classes were 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. This class is 45 minutes.
Tippi Toes wants dancers to feel comfortable in what they wear to class! For all classes besides hip hop, your dancer can wear a combination of a leotard, tights, and ballet skirt or leggings and a non-restrictive top. Ballet slippers are preferred but not required. However, they will need them for recital. Please write your child’s name in the inside of all shoes. No tap shoes are needed. For hip hop, shorts or leggings and a t-shirt, tank top or leotard with tennis shoes works best.
