Our kids classes for little movers ages 5-12 provide dance experiences that enhance learning, inspire creativity, and contribute to a sense of wellness. Students connect together while moving and grooving in our classes.
Classical ballet is the mainstay and technical foundation of Alonzo King LINES Ballet. Students will learn the very basics of ballet in a highly personalized and non-intimidating atmosphere. Body stance, body placement, musicality, and terminology will be emphasized, and students will explore ballet-based creative storytelling and pantomime.
Ballet I (5-7 year olds)
Kids will learn the basics of Ballet including the five positions and barre-like exercises for building strength, while exploring ballet-based creative storytelling and pantomime.
Ballet II (8-12 year olds)
This class will build on the basics of Ballet, including the five positions and barre-like exercises for building strength, while developing choreographic skills to learn and rework famous ballet variations.
Hip Hop Dance class focuses on choreography that combines standard footwork and isolations with current dance trends. Routines are a combination of both smooth and sharp movement, playing with the dynamic of both to create interesting and unique routines that blend together different styles of hip hop.
