At age 2 we begin to introduce structure into class time. Students will spend 15 minutes working on following directions and basic body movements that are an introduction to ballet/jazz. The second half of the class features simple stretches and a tumbling obstacle course to help students get in touch with their balance and core strength.
Strap on your tap shoes, twirl into class, or hip hop into the studio! We offer a tap / ballet combo as well as a few other genres of dance/tumble for these ages. Classes vary depending on demand, so check our current schedule to see what we are offering this season!
Your child can ride the bus (from Gearhart Elementery School or Warrenton Elementary School) or have the Encore Shuttle pick them up. We offer shuttle service from Astor Elementary, Lewis and Clark Elementary, Astoria Middle School, Astoria High School and Seaside Heights Elementary. Once children arrive at the studios from school they participate in dance, tumble, and kids club with customizable pick-up times available between 4:15 to 5:30 daily.
Dance and Tumbling classes are also available a-la-carte for students who aren't interested in a full after-school schedule. Kids Club is not available for individual sign up, however.
If you're new to dance or if you've been dancing since you were 2, we have teen classes for beginner to advanced. Genres include but are not limited to Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Acro, Hip Hop, Musical Theater and Tumbling
