Dancers age three by September 1, will experience the joy of dance in a warm, inviting environment independent of caregivers. Students will be introduced to a variety of dance concepts and explore ways to move expressively with props, storytelling, and partner activities. Basic ballet skills are part of our brain-compatible curriculum and a focus on social-emotional learning from skilled teachers helps foster cooperation and creativity for our youngest dancers, as they participate in class on their own for the first time!
We offer tap dance classes to children, as well as adults. It is never too late to see if you could master this amazing style of dance. It does require regular practice to get good at it, but with our accommodating tap dance classes and close proximity to Thomasville, NC, we are confident we can have you tap dancing up a storm before too long. Our goal with our tap dance classes and any of our dance classes is to inspire, motivate and enrich the lives of our students. Whether you have never worn a pair of tap shoes in your life or have been tapping away for years, we are confident we have plenty to offer. Our skilled instructors, small class sizes, and state-of-the-art facility are just what you need to lift your spirits with the sound that is music all by itself.
This class is a favorite among many of our students. Everyone loves the opportunity to explore the ballet technique taught in this class, while also mastering the classic ballet barre. Our amazing instructors make sure everyone gets individual attention while keeping the class collaborative. These classes will include a recital piece.
At Vision Dance we train dancers to move every part of their body; but in a proper and tasteful manner. We choose to honor and please God in our music, dress, and movement choices. We use Christian hip-hop music and keep the "Urban hip-hop culture" out of the studio. Hip Hop derives from street dances created in America during the 1970s, such as popping, locking, and breaking. Classes have a heavy focus on individual expression, rhythm, and musicality.
