At JM Studios, we offer several class option to best suit your schedule and needs. Below is a short description of the classes we offer and what you can expect to receive in the class once you are registered.
Our combination classes are made up of tap, jazz, ballet & tumbling. With shoes on their feet and mats on the floor, dancers will begin to learn many new things! In tap, basic tap steps and progressions are taught, as well as music interpretation and music counts. Jazz leaps and turns are taught during this class (ages 4 +). In ballet, they will learn the most basic steps for dance; from first position to chaîné turns, they will perfect their balance and begin to learn stage presence. with tumbling, each child will learn exactly how their bodies can move; starting with forward rolls, they will continue to progress. Students are placed in combination classes based on age.
This is a funky, modern, upbeat class for students of all ages. This is a class for the basic beginner and intermediate dancer. Less technique is used in our hip-hop classes and is more focused on energy and expression.
Clogging/Beginner Clogging/Adult Clogging:
Clogging is out specialty. Clogging originated over 200 years ago and is changing rapidly in our area. In our clogging classes, dancers will learn progressions, technique, rhythms, and musicality. New students will start in beginner and move up to a higher level at the instructor's discretion. Our clogging team are reigning National Champions and we look forward to teaching more of our youth about such a unique form of dance.
Our tumbling class is available to kids ages 5+. In this class, students will learn the basic fundamentals of gymnastics. Starting with forward rolls and backbends, your child will continue to progress each week. Students will see their improvement as they are able to tackle a new skill during each class! The kids will also work on flexibility and strength which will help them excel as they tumble!
**No matter what class your child in enrolled in, they will make new friends while building their self-esteem!**
