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
Elementary Level is an introduction to movement and dance technique. This level will familiarize students with the fundamentals of ballet, jazz and creative movement. The basic elements of coordination, body alignment, weight transfer and correct posture are introduced in ballet and reinforced respectively in jazz classes. The concepts of flexibility and muscle engagement are brought to light in safe, small progressions. At this level, students learn the difference between parallel positions and a properly rotated leg. Leg height is stabilized at forty-five degrees. Dance vocabulary is introduced in both Ballet and Jazz classes, and all concepts are put forward in a positive, nurturing environment. Students leave this level with a great basis to forward in their training.
