We offer classes for skill levels that range from beginner through professional. Wildwood Dance and Arts ballet program is truly an American blend taking the best of respected classical techniques; such as Vaganova (Russian), Balanchine (American), and Cecchetti (Italian). Our 8 year program is centered in the Vaganova Method of training that follows a definitive progression through each lesson. Repetition is an integral part to learning ballet technique. Each level builds upon the elements previously presented. It is not uncommon for students to be in the same level for multiple years.
Ballet/Tap: combo classes are developed to allow the younger, and/or newer, students the opportunity to begin study in both disciplines and create an early foundation in which to build upon. They are designed to be a combination of the pre-ballet study and beginning tap sounds and movements, devoting ½ the time to each on a regular basis. These combo classes are available to 4-5yrs, and 6-8yrs. (1 hour in length)
Ballet/Tap/Jazz: combo classes are developed to be an introductory course for students expanding, or just trying, their skills at ballet, tap, and jazz. Ballet is the foundation for jazz dance and this class allows the children to see the roots and progression in the disciplines. It also allows the student to start their tap sounds and movements, deovting 1/2 hour at a time on each skill base. They are designed to accommodate the growth in learning capabilities of slightly older students and are available to 8-10yrs. (1.5 hours in length)
