A full year consists of 34 classes, running from early September (classes start the week of September 9th, 2019) to mid-May. The 34 teacher-led classes are comprised of 32 in-studio classes and one dress rehearsal and the year end recital. All in-studio classes are 1 hour in length with the exception of Pre School Ballet (30 minutes), Pointe (30 minutes) and Beginner Ballet (45 minutes). All classes are held in a bright, mirrored & barred dance studio on a beautiful sprung dance floor.
Ballet Current classes offered are Pre School Ballet (ages 3 - 4), Beginner Ballet (ages 5 - 6), Junior Ballet (ages 7 - 9) and Senior Ballet (ages 12+). We also offer Pointe classes to those students who are ready for the same.
Acro Acro is a dance form that includes acrobatic movements. The students learn these acro movements on mats during a portion of their class. We offer an all inclusive Acro class for children ages 8+. Our dance mistress Miss Brooke is extremely skilled at working with students individually at varying skill levels.
Contemporary/Lyrical This is a modern dance form which fuses modern dance, jazz, and ballet. This form is often referred to as lyrical dance. We currently offer Senior Lyrical Contemporary (ages 12+). We strongly suggest complimenting this class with the Advanced Ballet class.
Musical Theatre This class taught by vocal coach Ms. Kelly Coubrough will be offered this year for ages 7 to 15. Students enrolled in this class will focus primarily on acting and voice. The Musical Theatre class will be part of a larger Revue at the end of the year.
Things to Note....
We use age as a gauge only; if students are more than ready for a level above despite their age, they will be moved to a class where they are challenged but not overwhelmed by the syllabus.
Performing in front of an appreciative audience is key in building a student’s confidence. We will present The Nutcracker on December 15th and the year-end recital will be held on the weekend PRIOR TO the May Long weekend.
Miss Brooke would like to take students to Competition this year. This is a new and exciting offering at FACES. If your child would like to enter a competition as a soloist, or part of a duo or trio please talk to us about arrange Private Lessons with Miss Brooke. Rates for Private Lessons are $30 per hour for Solo ($20 per half hour solo), $48 per hour for Duets (shared between two students) and $54 per hour for Trios (shared between three students.)
