Every year we try new things in hopes to develop and grow the studio, this was the first year we offered two different programs “technique classes” and “recital classes.” The program was a huge success and we will be offering it once again next year. The idea between the classes is described below.
Focus will be on proper technique, flexibility, strength, stamina and musicality will be emphasized in these classes. Short combinations will be learned to assist students in the ability top pick up choreography and combine the technique they have learned with stylized moves. Technique classes do not have a performance piece and will not perform in our year-end recital.
The focus is on performance. Students will be learning basic technique but the majority of the class will focus on routine, stage presence etc. Recital classes may have a wide variety of age groups and ability. This is because these classes are performance based, and teachers can work with different ages and levels to create a dynamic performance piece. Recital classes perform at our year-end recital.
*For students taking both technique and recital class – we will have a reduced rate for the 2nd class.
