Dance classes are led by our experienced Dance teacher and coordinator Ms. Jill Dextraze. Ms. Jill has an extensive background in dance and is a member of the Associated Dance Teachers of New Jersey.

Dance has shown to be extremely beneficial to students by developing good posture, poise and grace, promoting friendships, self-esteem and confidence, stimulating creativity and encouraging the appreciation of the performing arts.

We are excited to bring back dance for our Fall 2020 Session.

Ballet dance

Pre-Ballet

Ages 3-4 years
A wonderful introduction to the joy of dance! Children will march, jump, and twirl as they learn ballet using props, imagery, and games. Children will develop grace and coordination in a fun, nurturing environment.

Ballet I/Tap

Ages 4-6 years
The perfect combination class for 4 to 6 year olds!   Ballet promotes coordination, balance, and grace while tap develops a sense of rhythm, timing, and musicality. An exciting introduction to dance!

This combination of ballet and tap dance will further develop the dance skills learned at the previous level. Focus will be on technique and strength. Tap basics learned in Level1 will be expanded.
