Junior Players' dance classes provide children the opportunity to learn a variety of dance techniques, including jazz, tap, hip hop, modern, ballet, flamenco, and ballet folklórico. Instructors emphasize the fundamentals of dance, teaching basic warm up exercises and then basic steps and techniques. Children learn one or two dances for a culminating performance. Limited availability for tap, flamenco and ballet folklórico. All students receive certificates of recognition at the end of the workshop. Dance classes require a minimum of a 10 session booking. Dance shoes are provided for ballet and tap classes ONLY if you book 12 sessions or more.
