One hour or more, per week per discipline, Ballet, Jazz, or Tap should be the norm at this level. This is the year stamina & strength is developing for beginning pointe work. Depending upon how many hours a week Ballet is attended and if the age of twelve is attained, pointe might be started the next school year. The advice and training you give to this level of dancer may determine their decision to remain for further study.

Ages 4 thru 6
As the muscles & bones in both age groups are still developing and growing in strength, Level One now follows through to a higher awareness of correct placement with gentle repetitive technique training. In Level One we now begin the long journey of dance training. Encouraging the muscles to correctly remember the exercises is a slow process for the once a week dancer. Suggesting multiple classes will increase the development for each student.
This sixty four page syllabus offers an intensive two hour weekly class, forty five minutes of ballet, forty five minutes of jazz with a half hour tap session.
The natural progression of this class I consider to be the true beginning level of dance. in the previous class, Beginning Dance Combo, the emphasis was on movement without forced technique. For classes at this level the time has been increased.
For the beginning student age 7 thru teens or adults.
This comprehensive lesson plans of Ballet, Jazz, & Tap helps to lay down a solid foundation of dance in all it's forms. The programs in Beginning Dance Combination, Volume 2, are repetitive in order to provide the consistency needed to train the muscle memory.

It is a eighty eight page extensive program for a ninety minute weekly class to be used consistently throughout the dance year. It is presented in a manner that familiarizes the student with the precision necessary to attain this art form yet is not intimidating.
