Tutus and Tiaras
Our Tutus and Tiaras dance classes are designed to offer a gentle introduction to dance with a focus on imagination and creative movement. Our experienced faculty use educational activities and a theme-based curriculum to inspire young dancers, while incorporating a strong foundation and fostering a desire to learn.
Parents may view classes on a closed-circuit TV monitor in a separate spacious lobby with toys and games for young siblings. Open House is hosted inside the classrooms every six to eight weeks for students to showcase routines and curriculum.
Tutus and Tiaras students are featured in our annual Spring Dance Concert. Dancers showcase their achievements in a three minute routing on the beautiful stage at Blacksburg High School in front of a full audience!
This forty-five minute class is for our 3-4 year old students. Ballet and Tap fundamentals include positions, carriage, rhythm, musicality, coordination, opposites, directions, creative expressions, and showmanship. Tumbling and balance beam foster flexibility, fine and grosse motor skills.
“Tiaras” classes build on the fundamentals learned in “Tutus” classes and add intermediate dance combinations. Jazz is introduced to our curriculum, and students can choose a one hour class that includes two techniques featuring ballet, tap, jazz, or gym.. Dancers are encouraged to attend two one-hour classes per week.
To ensure that every student is placed in the correct class to receive the best experience possible while optimizing their training, we invite you to contact us for a FREE preview class, tour, and skills evaluation.
