This is a combination class of tap, ballet, and jazz. The class is for 5-6 year olds with little or no experience. Lots of fun and great for overall development of strength, coordination and poise.
Rising Stars l, ll, and ll Any color leotard and tights. In these classes there is the possibility of them doing two dances in recital. More so for Rising Stars ll and lll than Rising Stars l, however it is at the discretion of the teacher based upon the individual class. This level needs to have the "U-Shell" tap shoes which look much like the previous level but are made more sturdy and have a more significant tap attached which is needed at this level. These classes continue to do ballet but also begin to incorporate much more jazz in their class. Pink Ballet shoes or tan jazz shoes are welcome during the beginning of the season. It is possible that if performing a jazz routine in recital that they will definitely have to have the jazz shoes for recital. Hair should be secured back and no jewelry in class. Please place name in all shoes. A dance bag is also great to have.
We use Revolution brand tan slip on buckle tap shoes, tan jazz shoes and pink ballet shoes that can be purchased at DPU. Although we do not care if you have different tap, jazz and ballet shoes in the beginning of the season, just know that for recital they all must match exactly and be the same brand. We start them (and you) off from little on knowing that taking the stage in unison and being professional counts! ALL dancers must have the correct and all matching shoes and tights for recital, performances, and competitions.
When you receive recital information in November the style, color and brand of shoe will be noted.
