Arise & Shine is a technique/skills class that aims to teach students 1st through 3rd grades basic dance fundamentals as well as prepare them for future dance experience. Each class begins with a devotion and prayer time. Afterwards, dancers will learn stretches and exercises to increase strength, flexibility, and stamina. In addition, dancers will work at the ballet barre on various skills that will better their technique. Finally, dancers will work on choreography for multiple dance styles (ballet, jazz/hip hop, and contemporary) to learn routines and gain muscle memory. Dancers will need to invest in a pair of ballet shoes, a black leotard, and tights.The links to purchase these items will be provided. There will be a “Show What You Know” day at the end of the year for dancers to demonstrate for parents all they have learned throughout the year as well as perform their dance routines.
