Adv. Beg Combo
Adv. Beg. Combo is the natural progression after the Beg. Combo. This class is still 1 hour in length and will continue to develop skills in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, and Acro.
Combo split follows Adv. Beg. Combo and is an hour and 1/2 class. The main focus in this class is Tap and Jazz. The children will perform 1 Tap and 1 Jazz dance in our recital, however, only 1 costume deposit is required. If your child is interested, we suggest adding a ballet class at this point.
*Once your child is 4 she/he may add Ballet, and when your child is 5 they may add Acro, or Hip Hop. We strongly advise you to have your child continue with the combo classes through Combo split. The combo classes will give her/him a firm foundation and the advantage of a well rounded dance education. After Combo Split she/he may pick 1 hour of any form of dance or choose to take several classes. Her options will be open and we will be able to place her in an age appropriate class.
