Prima Star Jazz/Tap Combo
This exciting class combines both tap and jazz dance skills and movements for ages 5 and 6. The purpose of the class is to introduce young dancers to these two popular styles of dance and inspire movement and creativity within a positive, encouraging and nurturing environment. Dancers will also learn basic steps and terminology in both styles. For example, dancers will learn what a “shuffle” is and how to demonstrate it. Fun, age appropriate music engages the young dancers’ minds and bodies. Props such as hula hoops for “freeze dance” makes the end of class the most fun!

Prima Star AcroDance
If your child loves dance and gymnastics, then this is the perfect class for them! We teach the Acrobatic Arts AcroDance curriculum for ages 3-6 which focuses on physical literacy for young students. Your child will be learning Acro positions, locomotive skills, balance, and movement concepts through imaginary play, fun and games. By the end of the season your child will be able to correctly perform pre-cartwheels, L handstands, and somersaults, and will be ready to work their way up to handstands, cartwheels, and walkovers, and eventually, back-handsprings, and ariels effortlessly across the stage! This is a great stand-alone class for boys and girls, and is also a fantastic addition to any dancer’s training. The Acrobatic Arts curriculum follows a safe and technical progression of Acro skills to insure your child is building the correct skills of an Acro dancer.
