TAME Dance Academy’s curriculum is designed to teach a young dancer how to behave in a professional environment. The training is conservatory–style, with a heightened focus on technique and artistry. Daily instruction in ballet, jazz and contemporary technique are required to provide stronger foundations for the supplemental courses in hip-hop, tap and acrobatics. In the studio, each student is taught how to show proper respect to any instructor and how to behave in differing classroom situations. The TAME student will complete their training as a well-rounded individual, knowledgeable in all techniques and able to succeed in a professional dance environment.
In attempts to comply with State and Federal Recommendations, TAME Dance Academy is going VIRTUAL beginning Monday, March 30th following the Spring Break.
During this unprecedented period in time, all TAME classes will be offered LIVE online using the virtual meeting platform ZOOM. CLASS CODES have been emailed to all registered students.
Ages 5+ | Performing at an Elementary Level
Level I is the beginning of dedicated pre-professional technical training. This level will teach students the fundamentals of ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. The basic elements of correct posture, body alignment, flexibility and weight transfer are introduced in ballet and reinforced respectively in jazz and contemporary classes. Knowledge of the classical directions of the body and all of the progressive steps from tendu to simple allegro will be achieved. At this level, leg height is stabilized at forty-five degrees with focus on proper rotation from the hips. Vocabulary is stressed and emphasized in great detail. Discipline, respect and classroom etiquette are strictly enforced. This very important level is vital in establishing a firm base on which future training will be built on in all styles.
