Spirit Dancers

IGNITE Spirit!

Dancers ages 10 to 14 have generally been exposed to dance – whether from previous experience, or from viewing live theatre or television shows. At this level, we want to emphasize team spirit and working together to achieve success in the studio. We also want to encourage students to bring excitement and energy into their dancing. At this level, dance classes should be high energy, challenging and positive.

Class times for beginners are listed below. If your dancer has previous experience, please connect with us at info@ignitedancestudios.com for an assessment and list of recommended classes.

Ballet

Ballet is the foundation of technical dance training. It involves slow controlled movements and allows the dancer to develop strength and grace.

We use an R.A.D. syllabus to guide our dancers through learning ballet vocabulary. They use this knowledge to work towards R.A.D. examinations which they can enter upon Teacher Approval.
