We are so thrilled that you are interested in dance classes! It is our mission here at Tippi Toes® to develop a love of dancing in children by creating a positive experience that promotes healthy living habits, helps build self-confidence, and a love for others.
Every Tippi Toes® class 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:
Our Tiny Toes dance class is geared for children 18 mos – 3 yrs who are ready to dance without mommy or daddy beside them. It focuses on ballet and some tap and we introduce the dance technique and styles in a fun, positive, and encouraging way. In this class we use many props and familiar songs, as well as our Tippi Toes music, to keep children engages. This class meets once a week of 30 minutes.
Ballet, Tap & Jazz
Our Ballet, Tap & Jazz class for 4 – 7-year-olds incorporates all three techniques while also encouraging self-expression and creativity. High energy music is used throughout the class to get dancers moving and having fun! A Winter Show is held in December and a dance recital is held in May where dancers showcase all they have learned! Both performances are completely optional! This class meets once a week for 45 minutes.
Our Hip Hip class is created for children 5 – 12 years of age. Using popular, age-appropriate music, as well as our own Tippi Toes music, the students learn choreography in a hip hop technique. A Winter Show is held in December and a dance recital is held in May where dancers showcase all they have learned! Both performances are completely optional! This class meets once a week for 45 minutes.
