This Mommy and me 2 year old dance class is designed to help children get a first taste of a classroom environment without having to leave Mommy behind. It will work on things like coordination, left and right, counting rhythm, creativity, and many other pre-dance skills such as demi pointe, turns, and arabesque.
For students ages 3 through 4th grade we have combination classes in ballet, tap, and/or jazz. These classes are designed to teach children the basics of dance and to help spark a love of movement!
We are very excited about our company classes which are for dancers who want a more serious approach to their dance. Company is for dancers who are in 8th grade or higher and have had at least 2 years of dance experience. Company will get a total of 4 hours a week as well as extra performance opportunities. The goal of this program is to help students become confidant in their technique and to build their artistry. It will be highly focused on individual goals and prepping students for a dance life beyond Del Rio. This program is audition based, if you are interested in auditioning email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
For grades 5-7 we have junior company. This program is designed to be working towards the goal of company and will see an increase in hours per week as well as a strong focus on technique and terminology which are the foundations for any great dancer.
This class is for those who are already en pointe. It will work on building strength and confidence in your pointe work.
We believe that you’re never too old to begin your dance journey! Join us for a 6 week beginner tap workshop, Oct 3rd-Nov 14th. Tap is a great place for adults to start their dance training since it’s all very natural body movements, not to mention it’s a blast! Learn something new in a short term commitment, judgement free class! Ages 14 and up.
