Charlotte Dance Alliance provides quality dance education for all ages in ballet, tap, jazz and more. Combination classes are a great way for students to experience different types of dance in one instructional time period.

The main focus of combination classes is on students having fun and enjoying dance as an everyday activity. Class placement is based on age as well as a student’s ability to learn.

BALLET & TAP COMBINATION (Ages 4 to 6)  

This combination class is a 60 minute class that trains students in three dance forms: ballet, tap, and hip-hop/jazz. In our classical ballet syllabus, emphasis will be on the clarity of classical placement, technique, barre work, adagio, and alegro variations. The rockin’ tap section of class will enhance articulation and clarity of tap sounds, while teaching tap techniques, terminology, center floor and progressions. The Hip-Hop/Jazz section of class introduces students in jazz techniques, hip-hop, and urban-style movements, Children love being a part of this dynamic dance craze!
