Twirl

LET’S TWIRL!! 

Does your 3, 4 or 5 year old love to dance?

We have the perfect program for him/her! TWIRL!

  • Twirl 1 is for 3 year olds and is a 45 minute class once a week.

  • Twirl 2 is for 4 year olds and is a 45 minute class once a week.

  • Twirl 3 is for 5 year olds and is a 45 minute class once a week.

Twirl enhances our outstanding 20 year established Pre-dance program focusing on co ordination, musicality and imagination while learning basic ballet, jazz, musical theatre and tap (tap shoes provided during the year). 

As a Twirl dancer, your child will receive:

  • A Twirl activity book: We will utilize the book at least once per month during class, so we will store it at the studio all year. We will personalize it to your dancer, and they can take it home at the end of the year for continued fun!

  • A Twirl ribbon for their dance bag: Each week, at the end of class, your dancer will earn a rhinestone for their ribbon. At the end of the dance year, they will have a super sparkly souvenir of their dance year!

  • A Twirl Graduation Celebration Certificate: At the end of the dance year your child will earn a certificate of completion!

  • Your little dancer will look forward to dance day each week with the fun and imaginative activities offered in their Twirl class!   (Any aspects of the program that are geared towards girls will have an appropriate alternative for any boys registering in this program).

Broadway Next.jpg
Broadway Next

Broadway Next meets every Thursday night from 6:45-8:15pm. Those enrolled will begin by working on singing, dancing and acting skills while the instructors keep both the children’s experience and confidence in mind. In early October, the instructors (led by Kayla Cameron, a graduate of the 4 year degree program from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles) will choose the musical the children will be working on for the rest of the year. In mid May, Broadway Next will culminate in 2-3 in studio performances of their musical for audiences.
While no experience is necessary or extra classes are mandatory, it is highly encouraged that the children enrolled in Broadway Next also be taking a jazz or ballet class to work on their dance skills. Some children may have dance or singing or acting experience but most will not be well trained in all three!

Through Broadway Next, they will be introduced to character study, memorizing lines, staging and blocking, singing with a group and/or alone depending on their confidence, and basic choreography. They will learn to work with a group as well as on their own. They will work to design and build sets, with help from parents or grandparents as needed. They will choose their costumes from our extensive wardrobe.
This program requires regular attendance and a commitment from all members. A member may lose their role in the musical if they miss class regularly. Broadway Next requires a $100 non refundable deposit which is applied to the final payment instalment. The cost for the year is $900, divided in to a September instalment of $300, a December 1 instalment of $300 and a March 1 instalment of $200, or it can be paid in full. The $100 deposit is non refundable if a student drops out at any time in the program.
