CHAW dance classes are designed to grow with your child and give dancers an opportunity to learn and build on foundational skills in ballet, tap, and jazz. All students perform in demonstrations or recitals held at the end of each session. In our combo classes for young dancers, beginning students explore music and movement in a playful, joyful environment. Activities emphasize coordination and body awareness, listening skills, rhythms and patterns, and early social interaction. For ages 4 and above, class instruction includes dance technique, steps, and sequences that develop strength, stamina, and focus. Ballet and/or tap shoes, tights and leotard required.
