That’s Dancing is dedicated to making sure that our youngest dancers have fun. We teach proper technique while keeping an upbeat pace in all of our preschool classes. We strive to inspire the love of dance in all of our preschoolers. These classes are for 3-5 year olds (potty trained, please) and are 45 minutes long. Some 2 and ½ year olds are ready; you would be the best judge. The classes include a combination of tap, jazz and ballet.

COMPETITIVE CLASSES

We have a strong yet fun competitive program at That’s Dancing. These classes are available for students who choose dance as their primary activity, have a strong desire to learn, grow and compete as a dancer, are willing to practice and dedicate more time to classes and who progress quickly. Our competitive students are required to take ballet classes.

We normally attend three competitions each spring. Costumes, shoes and general requirements are greater for these classes. Students with interest in comptetive classes should make the instructor aware and the instructor will recommend a class or best course of action for the student.

Dress code:

  • Black leotard
  • Light suntan tights
  • Black booty shorts
  • Black sports bra (if needed)

Shoes:

  • Pirouette shoes (canvas or leather)
  • Black oxford split-sole tap shoes
  • Pink split-sole canvas ballet shoes

Hair:

  • Pulled back away from face, in a bun.

 

PRODUCTION TEAMS

That’s Dancing is very proud of our award winning production teams. These fast paced, high-energy classes are for our more advanced students of different age levels. Our Production Teams include our Mini Minis, Mini, Junior, Senior Prep, and Senior Tap Teams, a Jazz Production, a Ballet Production and occasionally other productions.

These classes are formed through invitations or auditions. Please understand that we cannot possibly invite all students and we try to be fair about the invitation process. We love all of our students, but Production Teams are not appropriate for every student.

SOLOS, DUETS, & TRIOS

With over 275 students, it is impossible for us to accommodate the needs of every student who wishes to do a solo, duet or trio. Therefore, we utilize a waiting list for these. These dances can be performed at competition or recital, not both. All solo, duet and trio students must take regular technique classes throughout the summer and fall; no exceptions.

Students ask their instructor of choice to teach the routine. Together, the student, parent and instructor determine the schedule. Classes are usually 30 minutes a week and are scheduled around our regular classes. Parents will pay the instructor directly; please ask for their rate, as they vary amongst teachers.
