DANCE ACADEMY CLASSES
At Music City All Stars, we feel we have a perfect class for each and every child. Our extensive class time options, as well as levels, allow a perfect fit for each child to grow to their full potential. We focus on your child's growth as both a dancer as well as instilling positive friendships and encouragement from their instructors.
Our Princess Ballerina Level 1 is a thirty-minute introductory dance class that is unique and valuable in the dance industry. The secret to the class is that it is structured and fun! It contains ballet and creative movement. Young dancers learn the necessary steps while learning how to follow direction and imitate movement in a positive environment. Engaging music is used to get these little dancers inspired to dance. The use of props such as “dancing bears,” hula hoops and maracas, enables the young dancers to use their imagination, creativity and, most of all, have fun!
Our Princess Ballerina Level 2 is an age-specific one hour class that contains ballet and jazz/creative movement. The purpose of the class is to introduce young dancers to the two styles of dance and inspire movement and creativity within a positive environment. Dancers also learn basic steps and terminology in both styles. For example, all dancers will learn what a “plie” is and how to demonstrate one.
The use of fun, age-appropriate music engages the young dancers’ minds and bodies. The use of props the parachute makes the end of class the most fun!
Pee Wee Performance is a class designed specifically for our Kindergarten to first-grade children. This combo is an hour long class. They will take ballet, jazz, and Tap give the children a fantastic base and exposure to different types of dance. We have found that this “combination” technique helps to keep the kids excited, interested, and focused for the entire time minute period.
*Children in this class also get two performance opportunities each year.
Our Mini Combo options are perfect for the 2nd-4th grader. Dancers can choose either option based on the level of commitment. One class will get to do one local competition in addition to our end of the year showcase. Both classes are a one hour long. Dancers will take Jazz, Lyrical and Ballet. This will give the children a fantastic base and exposure to different types of dance. We have found that this “combination” technique helps to keep the kids excited, interested, and focused for the entire period.

Our Youth combo class is a combination of both Jazz, Ballet and Lyrical. Jazz combines many styles and techniques from ethnic and contemporary dance, to ballet. Rhythm, upon which all dance forms depend, is particularly integral to jazz dance. The first half of class consists of exercises which stretch and tone muscles and develop support for proper stress-free alignment of the skeletal structure.
